HDB investigating incident

In response to queries from MS News, HDB confirmed that the incident occurred at the Nanyang Opal BTO construction site.

A bucket carrying a concrete mixture was in the process of being lifted by a rope when it became entangled with supportive props.

The mixture subsequently discharged from the bucket and spattered on the vehicles below and one of the car’s drivers.

Thankfully, no one was injured as a result of the incident.

HDB took the opportunity to apologise for the damage caused and is taking steps to resolve the issue.

“The building contractor has been in touch with the affected driver and the other car owners on a resolution. HDB is also working with our contractors to review the incident and enhance the site’s work processes to prevent a recurrence,” HDB stated.

HDB also assured it is taking a “serious view” of the incident and is currently investigating the matter.

“Safety at our worksites is of utmost priority… We will continue to work with our industry partners to strengthen workplace safety at our worksites,” HDB said.
