  1. 1. 1 | P a g e 1.0 ARTICLES 1.1 ARTICLE 1: A Worker Injured Due To Concrete Slab Collapsed On October 11, 2011, one worker was injured when a concrete slab collapsed in NU Sentral building under construction at KL Sentral yesterday morning. It is understood that a 35 years old Bangladeshi was doing the plastering work on the first floor of that building when a third floor gave way at about 10.30 am. Then, he was rushed to the University Malaya Medical Centre for medical surgery. The other workers on the first floor managed to escaped from fell down. The NU Sentral under construction is said to be three times bigger that Mid Valley Megamall and first green shopping mall in the city. MRCB representative said all the safety procedures had been adhered to workers were well equipped with personal protective equipment as required by local authorities. MRCB had informed to Department of Occupational Safety and Health about this incident. 1.2 ARTICLE 2: Terengganu Stadium ROOF COLLAPSES – after one year of being built “peteh ganu peteh”Terengganu last night was qualified for the finals of Malaysian football.Even though the team lost to”hobin jang hobin” negeri Sembilan team 2-1. Do you know that Terengganu is a state that has a soccer stadium is beautiful and great. just shortly over a year after it was officially opened by the YANG DI-PERTUAN AGONG SULTAN MIZAN ZAINAL ABIDIN, the roof of the stadium named after him in Gong Badak, Kuala Terengganu collapsed this morning, damaging a few cars that were parked in the vicinity.
  2. 2. 2 | P a g e 1.3 ARTICLE 3: One worker killed, another injured at MRT construction site In a statement, the MRT Corp said Rijaul Abdul Goni, 40, died on the spot while his compatriot identified as Shanaullah, 37, has been sent to Kuala Lumpur Hospital. It said a third worker identified as Rozlu Karim escaped injury. "Rijaul’s body has been sent to the hospital for a post-mortem. This will reveal the cause of death, and we will share this information once it is available”, said MRT Corp’s director of strategic communications & PR Amir Mahmood Razak. He said work has been suspended at the Semantan site. The work at the Semantan site is contracted to Sunway Construction. In the incident, the workers were assembling a rebar cage, when the test that held the rebar gave way and fell on them. Police and forensics are at the site and investigations have commenced to determine the cause of incident. Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department assistant operations director Azizan Ismail said the department received a call from the public at 3pm alerting them on the incident.Azizan said the initial information received stated that the incident occurred at 1.20pm. “We are puzzled as to why they (MRT Corp) did not alert us on the incident earlier,” said Azizan. This is the second time in under six months, that the MRT project site has been hit by a fatal accident. Last August, MRT Corp’s then chief executive Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid quit his post after an accident at its Kota Damansara site took the lives of three Bangladeshi workers. But the company rejected Azhar’s resignation letter. Much earlier, a motorist’s sedan was crushed when a metal slab fell on it at the MRT site in Pusat Bandar Damansara. There were no casualties in that incident. – February 27, 2015.
  3. 3. 3 | P a g e 2.0 SUMMARIZATION OF THE EACH ARTICLE 2.1 SUMMARY OF THE ARTICLE 1: In this case, management should be blame because of lack of safety. Based on this article, that the concrete slab was still wet and showing that they are just completed the casting work at third floor of complex building. From my point of view of this incident, the scaffolding which had been erected to support the structure formwork was inadequately of the strength support. According to the requirement under Regulations 29, Factory and Machinery (Building Operations and Works of Engineering) (Safety) Regulations 1986, the erection of formwork including the shores, braces and other supports shall be supervise and inspected by designated person (competent person) regularly. Any unsafe condition that been discovered during inspection shall be rectify immediately. The result of inspection shall be recorded and kept in properly. The inspection should be carry out before the casting works by designated person. 2.2 SUMMARY OF THE ARTICLE 2: My point of view about this article is, why the stadium was built at a cost of RM270 million could collapse just like that. Whether it is due to the negligence of the contractor or it is simply to expedite the construction of ‘Sukan Sukma Terengganu’. On June 2, 2009, a major part of the roof construction collapsed under normal weather conditions, including the section above the royal box. It was only a year after officially opened. The major cause for the collapse of the roof was identified to be the failure of design and the materials used. There were also reports of sporadic loud bangs and structure damage prior to the
  4. 4. 4 | P a g e collapse. One of the structural repair job on the roof was scheduled on the day of the collapse itself, along with some electrical repair works being carried out on other part of the stadium. As of June 2010, the cleaning work and relocation of the collapsed roof were not finished. This is one of the shocking accident in Malaysia beside the “the highland tower collapse”. It remembered us that the project costing millions of dollar does not guarantee safety to the public as long we do not adopt the entire security before starting construct. 2.3 SUMMARY OF THE ARTICLE 3: When it comes to Malaysia work-sites it is not "Safety First' but 'Safety Last". Everyone wakes up after a fatality, then go back to sleep again until the next one. The problem is, our contractors never believe in the fact that "Prevention is the best than cure" after you determine the symptoms, which is basically poor safety management and poor attitude. A study of our laws will reveal that there is a need for self-regulation at the work-place. Who is interested in self regulation to improve standards. All concerned are more interested in the bottom line from owners, to developers to main contractors and to sub contractors. Our regulations on Safety and Health are up to date and the best on with developed countries, but there is hardly any compliance. We have to understand that compliance to the law does not necessarily make a workplace safe. There is a need to manage safety and health with vigor and commitment. We see Japanese contractors, French contractors completing projects in Malaysia is adopting very high standards of Safety and Health.
  5. 5. 5 | P a g e 3.0 CONCLUSION: Rapid development of this emerging economy has certainly many benefits to all Malaysians. However, we also recognize that with the side effects that must be overcome. One of them is increased danger or risk in the workplace as a result of the use of materials, equipment and sophisticated processes and many at this time. Of course these risks effectively controlled to ensure productivity and quality of work in the construction industry can always be maintained at high levels (Embong Ludin, 1995). High accident in the construction sector can lead to loss of national manpower and loss of property worth thousands of millions of dollars each year. In the construction industry, most cases occur in the workplace injury was caused by workers not given adequate safety training or did not receive training (Grossman, 1996). Indeed, there is no denying that one of the side effects of rapid economic development in recent years is the risks that involves the risk of labor accidents and occupational diseases are reported more serious. Accidents and occupational diseases that affect the development of the country's high and the loss of manpower. As you know, labor is an important national asset and the backbone of the development process. Economic and social development cannot be achieved without contributions from the workers. The Provisions are complied with by the employer as the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 to provide training and provide safety knowledge does not seem to be fully implemented by the employer. Grounds of high cost of training to be the main reason employers refuse to implement this requirement (Everett, 1996). According to Davies and Thomasine (1996), employers in the construction industry to provide various levels of safety and health training to each employee and officer management. Therefore, the employer or contractor can be said is the key in determining the safety and health of employees.
