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! Shouldn’t they be blacklisted especially for a big project like this? What’s going on? Anyhow only!
