Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) said a thorough investigation into the cause of the collapse of metal scaffolding at the construction site of Light Rail Transit 3 (LRT3) in Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang will be conducted by its turnkey contractor.
A Bangladeshi construction worker was killed following the collapse, while four workers in their 30s suffered minor injuries, reported Bernama.
Prasarana revealed that it has instructed its contractor, MRCB George Kent Sdn Bhd, to provide a detailed report and the mitigation measures it is taking to ensure that the incident would not happen again in the future.
“We firmly believe that safety is paramount and it requires attention and total commitment from all parties involved to ensure overall worksite safety is maintained and that we comply with safety regulations at all times,” it said in a statement.
Prasarana said it will also launch its own investigation into the matter while extending “full cooperation to the authorities to ensure a thorough and independent investigation is carried out”.
“We express our deepest regrets to those affected and condolences to the family of the deceased. We pray those injured will recover soon and will ensure that they and their families’ well-being are prioritised,” it added as quoted by Bernama.
