You are encouraged to declare your onsite manpower if you received an email notifying you to submit your onsite manpower details, or if there is a “MPSubmit” reference number in your company dashboard after you have logged into GoBusiness.
For companies in the Construction, Process and, Marine and Offshore Sectors
Companies in the above sectors will not receive an email notification to submit manpower details but should still continue to submit their manpower details for the reference numbers they see in the system that are available to them. These companies are required to submit more information including NRIC/Fin numbers and premises/location details in their manpower declaration. These companies will not have an “MPSubmit” reference number.
The onsite manpower declaration will help us in tracking and guide our decisions moving forward.
We seek your assistance in adhering to this and appreciate your contributions in the national fight against COVID-19.
If you received an email notification to submit your onsite manpower details, but do not see a “MP-Submit” reference number in your company dashboard, please write to MTI at COVID_GoBusiness@mti.gov.sg to request for assistance.
There is no need to edit the manpower declaration in other reference number(s). From 24 September 2021, you will only need to declare your on-site manpower under the “MPsubmit-“ reference.
Please login to https://go.gov.sg/covidbusinessresumptions and log in to the system using your Corppass account. Thereafter, scroll down to the relevant reference number and click on the button “submit manpower” to submit your manpower details.
Please refer to this guide for instructions on how to declare your manpower details.
Specific manpower declaration requirements for the Marine & Offshore and Process sectors can be found in the section below titled “For Marine & Offshore and Process sectors only”.
This refers to the total number of employees working on-site (i.e. no longer working from home full-time).
For example, your company has a total of 100 employees. 60 of your employees are required to work onsite to operate your production plant, whereas 40 of your employees are able to work from home all the time. The total number of manpower working on-site is 60.
This refers to the maximum number of workers on site at any given time (after taking into account shift work/split team arrangements/part-time).
For example, your 60 employees are required to work onsite work in three shifts – a morning shift of 30 workers, a afternoon shift of 20 workers, and a night shift of 10 workers. The maximum number of workers you will have on site at any given time is 30.
Please refer to this guide for instructions on how to declare your manpower details. If you continue to face any issues declaring your manpower details, please contact COVID_GoBusiness@mti.gov.sg for assistance.
You will be expected to ensure that your manpower details are updated regularly. Any significant changes to the manpower count or manpower details which you had declared earlier should be updated as soon as possible.
You will receive an email acknowledgment of your manpower declaration. In the meantime, you may continue to operate if your business activities fall within MTI’s list of permitted services or you have a General Exemption approval to operate onsite. You must adhere to all the relevant safe management measures for your sector.
If you have not received an acknowledgement email, your email address may be inaccurately captured on our system. For applicants with a CorpPass account, kindly login to https://go.gov.sg/covidbusinessresumptions to verify that your email address is accurately reflected.
You will be able to update your email address if needed. All changes will be reflected immediately. You will also be able to check whether your declaration has been captured. You should resubmit the declaration if it has not been captured.
You may change and resubmit your manpower declaration up to 5 times a day. Each new submission will override all previous submissions.
From 1 January 2022 to 14 January 2022, up to 50% of employees who can work from home are allowed to return to the workplace. Employers must ensure only the following employees can return to the workplace: (i) employees who are fully vaccinated with a vaccine under the National Vaccination Programme or WHO Emergency Use Listing and their respective post-vaccination duration, (ii) employees who have recovered from COVID-19 within the past 180 days, (iii) unvaccinated employees who have tested negative for COVID-19 within 24 hours of returning to the workplace, via a Pre-Event Test at an MOH-approved COVID-19 test provider. Employees who are medically ineligible for all the vaccines under the National Vaccination Programme, including Sinovac, are exempted from the testing requirement above if they need to work on-site
From 15 January 2022 onwards, only employees who are fully vaccinated, certified to be medically ineligible or have recovered from COVID-19 within 180 days, can return to the workplace. The concession for unvaccinated employees to perform PET in lieu of being fully vaccinated will be removed, i.e. such employees will not be allowed to return to the workplace even if they did PET with a negative result. Partially vaccinated employees will still be allowed at workplaces with a negative PET result up to 31 January 2022 after which they must be fully vaccinated.
Workers who are not working from home should be counted, i.e. your count of workers should include (a) the workers who are working at your work premises and (b) the workers whom you have deployed outside of your work premises, but not working from home.
If your registered business premise is your place of residence, you can submit manpower as “0”.
In relation to the safe management measure on work-from-home, enforcement officers will review whether the role of the worker who is working onsite cannot be performed from home.
