A 55-year-old worker from Singapore was killed on 20 July after falling off a boat and being struck by the boat’s motor propeller.
The incident happened at the Police Coast Guard’s headquarters in Pulau Brani, at 11 Brani Way, on 20 July at about 11am.
The man was a worker from Citadelle, a consultancy services and training firm, and he was alone on the boat at the time, according to MOM.
The police were alerted to the accident at about 11.20am, and the man was pronounced dead at the scene by an SCDF paramedic.
The Police also added that they do not suspect any foul play, based on preliminary investigations, and they are looking into his death.
The deceased was apparently a trainer, and Citadelle has been asked to stop all of their training activities by MOM.
The 55-year-old’s death takes the number of workplace deaths this year to 31, more than the 30 workplace deaths in the whole of 2020 and slightly lesser than the 37 workplace deaths recorded last year, with 5 more months to go.
This is also the 3rd workplace death where a worker had fallen into the sea.
