Port of Singapore Authority is enhancing its safety measures at all its terminals with immediate effect in view of heightened risk of the spread of COVID-19 infection.
amely, from 3rd May, all vessels berthing at PSA Singapore Terminals must conduct contactless (segregated) cargo operations.
This means that during cargo operations, the vessel crew are to stay within the accommodation area of the vessel and to avoid contact with the stevedores working on board the vessels. The details of the procedures for this operation is as shown in the list below.
In addition all crew are required to comply and adopt safe measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection. As explained crew are to wear a mask at all times when outside the vessel’s accommodation, continue to practice good personal hygiene, maintain a safe distance of 2 metres from the stevedores, and minimise any contact with shore-based personnel.
By observing these enhanced Safe Management Measures, we hope to safeguard the health and safety of the vessel’s crew and our workforce. Please inform the Master of vessels at least 48 hours before the vessels arrive in Singapore waters of this requirement.

Concluding, further details of the procedures for this operation is as shown in the list below.
