Negligence, lack of safety management cause of Ampang slope collapse - #MPAJ

The accident at the construction site in Ukay Perdana, Ampang, was not due to structural failure or slope collapse.

Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) corporate planning director Rosliza Mohd said the incident on Wednesday was probably caused by negligence and the lack of safety management during construction work.

"Excavation works caused a 3.5m-high bank to collapse and bury the construction workers nearby," she said on Thursday.

The 11.30am incident killed three Myanmar workers, while a Bangladeshi worker was hospitalised.

Rosliza said following a site inspection with Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), MPAJ had issued a stop-work order on the entire construction site with immediate effect.
