Responding to the recent highway collapse near PIE which left 1 dead and 10 injured, Minister for Manpower Lim Swee Say said it was a man-made incident that could be avoided if everyone paid enough attention to workplace safety. He added: “A safe workplace is good for businesses too, because productivity and safety are essentially two sides of the same coin. One cannot do without the other.”

So far, investigations by multiple agencies show the accident was caused by corbels that gave way and failed to support beams. Cracks were also found on other parts of the viaduct.

As a result, Chen Yinchuan, who came to Singapore just 3 months ago to work as a construction worker, was killed while 10 others were injured. 6 are still warded, with 1 in unstable condition.
