Construction and Manufacturing Sector made up for half of all workplace fatalities last year and continued to account for the highest number of fatalities. Although it decreased significantly, with nine cases in 2020 compared to 13 in 2019, this was likely due to work stoppages in the second and third quarters of 2020.

In 1Q 2021, construction contributed 32 fatal and major injuries, higher than the past four quarters according to the National WSH Statistics.

There is an imminent necessity for all stakeholders in the Construction industry to work together for a safer workplace, so that stakeholders in the construction industry can be assured of a safer work environment.

Notwithstanding the harsh working condition of the construction industry, COVID-19 has worsen the working environment with the additional Safe Management Measures (SMM) and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements. The reduction of the migrant workforce significantly impacted the productivity and work progress. With the reduced workforce doing the same job, it is the correct brew for accident waiting to happen. It is therefore imperative that we must embrace technology to improve the safety and health of our workforce and the work environment.
