KUALA LUMPUR: An error in the procedure for lifting steel beams by the contractor caused the beams to fall and crush a vehicle at the LRT construction site in Subang last Thursday.
Deputy director-general (Operations) of the Occupational Safety and Health Department, Mohtar Musri said following findings of initial investigation, his department issued a stop work order on the contractor concerned.
“We have issued a stop work order on all construction packages under the company,” he said when contacted by Bernama here Monday.
However, the investigations would be continued to determine if there were elements of negligence.
In the incident, a couple were almost killed when several steel beams at the LRT construction site in Jalan Lapangan Terbang Subang crushed their car.
Mohtar said the contractor would be brought to court if the detailed investigation showed there was negligence.
