Mobility managers must take precautionary measures when assigning workers to highly polluted cities like Bangkok, Hong Kong and New Delhi, says Lee Quane, Asia director of ECA International. Elsewhere in Asia, places like Hong Kong and New Delhi are also making headlines for rampant air pollution and smog. Given the pervasiveness of air pollution, it is impossible for assigned employees to evade the problem. These include improving awareness about air pollution, occupational hazards, and eligibility for assistance, he said. With air pollution in Bangkok and northern Thailand exceeding health safety levels, the Pollution Control Department has advised residents to limit outdoor activities and wear a face mask.
