Letters - Get tough on worksite safety

THURSDAY'S tragedy where a motorist was crushed to death by a sheave hook refers.

How could the crane operator be singly liable for this accident? The safety officer and the engineers who certified the crane's safety are also liable.

The directors of all the companies involved, including the main contractor, sub-contractor and the company operating the crane should also be charged. Only then will those managing companies in Malaysia take safety issues seriously.

Too many innocent lives have been lost in worksite accidents. Tough action is needed to improve safety at building sites. The victims' next of kin can sue for compensation.
