Throw the book at errant firms

New Straits Times 04/01/2006
Noel F. D'Oliveiro, Ipoh

THE recent tragedy in which Dr Liew Boon Horng lost his life is a sobering reminder that construction sites are dangerous places, especially when insufficient care is taken to ensure materials are stored safely.

Abandoned projects, too, pose a danger and one wonders what the authorities are doing about it.

Safety requirements clearly spell out that materials and equipment are to be stored in such a way as to prevent danger to any person arising from sudden collapse or unintentional movement of such materials or equipment.

Throw the book at construction companies when safety measures are breached.
