KUALA LUMPUR: The Government has decided to crack down on errant contractors.
This follows the death of corporate leader Dr Liew Boon-Horng, 35, who was crushed to death by an iron mould that fell on his car from the 20th floor of a building under construction in Sri Hartamas here.
The Cabinet, which discussed the issue at length at its meeting yesterday, wants to ensure worksite safety is maintained at all times, and has ordered that:
In addition, it also ordered that work on the Plaza Damas serviced apartments where the incident occurred be suspended immediately and indefinitely.
And to ascertain if Dr Liew's death on Dec 30 was caused by the contractor's negligence, the Cabinet ordered the Construction Industry Development Board to investigate and come up with a report fast.
