Shipyard fined S$150,000 for failure to ensure workers' safety

Shipyard Prime Marine has been fined S$150,000 for failure to ensure workers' safety, resulting in deaths. This is a record sum for a shipyard under the Workplace Safety and Health Act. It equals the amount a construction firm was fined in another accident.

In December 2007, two workers of Prime Marine died after being told to carry out works in a tank on a vessel.

It turned out that the tank contained a toxic level of Hydrogen Sulphide.

The workers were instructed to proceed with the works by their supervisor Png Aik Meng without being provided proper equipment for breathing or gas detection.

Png knew of the presence of toxic gas but still sent the workers in despite the dangers involved.
Png, the supervisor in charge during the accident, was fined S$50,000.
