If Or Kim Peow Construction was already under LTA investigation for safety violations after a worker of their died, why was Or Kim Peow awarded the tender when there were other capable companies who bid for the job?
Shouldn’t there be punitive action taken while a company is being investigated? How can a company who flouts safety rules be seen as being rewarded with a huge contract when their safety record is poor?
What kind of message does it send to other contractors? Safety is not as important as price during a tender?
