COLLAPSED GOAL POST THAT KILLED STUDENT WAS NOT A SAFETY CONCERN IN SAFETY CHECKS

The collapsed goal post was bought in 2014 and it had a back bar which could enhance its stability. But the back bar had corroded by April this year, the very month that it fell on Hambali. The back bar is an optional requirement and it is not compulsory for goal posts to have them, and audits had earlier been conducted in the school last year and this year that found the affected goal post as not a safety concern.

The school now has signs to remind students not to push, pull or hang from goal posts.

OKP WON TENDER FOR PIE VIADUCT DUE TO ITS 'GOOD TRACK RECORD'

In a sign that our Ministers and the men in white are losing touch with reality, Senior Minister of State for Transport Lam Pin Min told Parliament today that Or Kim Peow Contractors won the bid for the building of the PIE viaduct because they had the lowest tender price, and they had a good track record.

Dr Lam said OKP’s bid was not disqualified, given that the Manpower Ministry was still investigating the 2015 fatal accident at one of its work sites in Yio Chu Kang.

HUMAN ERROR THE CAUSE OF HIGHWAY COLLAPSE?

It was suggested that the collapse happened because there could have been an error in the design, or the structures were not constructed to design specifications. If despite stringent checks and counter checks done to ensure this does not occur, but yet it still did, then questions would have to be asked of the structural engineers who did the checks. Another reason could have been ground movement, but again, this would have been checked before works are carried out.

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"!
