CONTRACTOR FINED $280,000 FOR FAILING SAFETY STANDARDS, CAUSED WORKER'S DEATH IN 2014

A contractor was fined $280,000 after one of its workers was crushed to death by a 1500kg metal gate back in 2014. The accident happened at a construction site at Bartley Rd. The worker was asked to check on the sliding of the gate when it toppled and pinned him to the ground. Sterling Engineering had failed to ensure safety standards and did not bother to supervise its workers properly. Lowest bid again?

COLLAPSED HIGHWAY CONTRACTOR OWNED BY PAP GRASSROOTS LEADERS

Or Kim Peow Contractor is the firm responsible for building the highway along Upper Changi Rd, but what's interesting is, it is owned by OKP Holdings Pte Ltd, whose Chairman and Directors are grassroots leaders! Chairman Or Kim Peow is in Potong Pasir CCC and was awarded Public Service Awards a few times before. His 3 sons are Directors of the company (surprise surprise!) and were similarly awarded for their contributions to public service. How come so many big shots but still cannot ensure safety precautions, still kena fined, still got lapse? What are they going to do about it now that they kena so many accidents? Eh pls la, make sure you run your company properly first before boasting about your involvement in "serving the community"!

HIGHWAY CONTRACTOR FINED 2 YRS AGO FOR NOT TAKING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

The contractor in charge of building the affected highway, Or Kim Peow Construction, was fined $250,000 2 years ago for failing to take safety precautions and causing a worker's death in an accident at Yio Chu Kang flyover. In 2015, 4 workers fell when the platform they were on gave way. The accident happened because the company did not check if the platform was properly put up. At the time, the Manpower Ministry said: "This is a clear case of a company that does not take workplace safety seriously". But 2 years later, they're still using the same contractor and look what happened!
