The police has put this incident under investigation.

Netizens were, understandably, shocked at the unfortunate incident, and expressed their horror and outrage.

One said, “OMG what a horrid way to die!why a 58y.o. lady doing such a dangerous job? no S.O.P?”

“This is truly saddening. No one deserves to die in such a horrific manner. My heart goes out to her family. RIP :(” another wrote.

Some questioned why the woman was inspecting the cargo hoist at all.

A commenter named Steve wrote, “What in the world is a 58 yo woman checking faulty cargo lifts for? This is the work of a professional that requires shut-down of facilities and erecting barriers and stop gaps to prevent failure. The bosses hide will be burnt if this is in another country but here in Singapore, the authorities most probably will blame the worker and everything will be ignore.”

Another wrote in, “Just in doubts. Is she the PE or AE to check the cargo hoist? If she is not, she should not be checking on this lifting equipment. The LE’s manufacturer or supplier should be called in to check and repair. Is the LE due for inspection or validation? If it is, this should be checked by the LE’s manufacturer or dealer, not she.”

Many netizens agreed with the commenter who said, “No wonder F&B sector keeps complaining very difficult to hire people. They should get working and safety conditions in their establishments right in the first place.”Follow us on Social Media
