Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) has clarified that the incident involving a worker abusing a colleague, that is going viral on social media, occurred months ago. A spokesperson from the hospital revealed to The Independent that action has been taken over the incident that occurred eight months ago.
Earlier today, Facebook page Singapore Uncensored published security camera footage showing an individual harassing a colleague repeatedly in what appears to be an office area.
While the video does not include audio, it is clear that the one harassing the colleague is very upset. The angry worker repeatedly points at what looks to be paperwork on the table before getting in the face of the colleague and physically pushing the colleague to the side.
The angry worker then walks towards another desk behind a partition before returning to gesticulate wildly at the colleague. The angry worker walks away once again before returning to the colleague.
Appearing to yell at the colleague, the angry worker seems to pick up a number of items and slams the items on the desk in front of the colleague angrily before moving away to his own desk.
The video quickly went viral, garnering over 27,000 views in 7 hours:

While Singapore Uncensored reported that the angry worker is a manager at TTSH, the hospital told The Independent that the incident involved staff from the hospital’s housekeeping vendor company.
In a statement to The Independent, the TTSH spokesperson said that the staff have since been counselled and added that the hospital takes workplace bullying seriously:
“The incident in question took place about 8 months ago, and involved staff from our housekeeping vendor company. Action has been taken by the company and the staff were counselled.
“Tan Tock Seng Hospital takes a serious view with regards to workplace bullying and will continue to work with our partners to create a safe workplace for all.”
