The Ministry of Manpower said in a press release that the incident happened on 3 October at Hougang 1 shopping mall at about 9.50am.

The victim was an employee of Avon Cleaning Services.

The elderly man was at the loading and unloading bay of the shopping mall at the time when he got hit by a lorry that was reversing.

He was sent to Sengkang General Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries and passed away.

The total number of workplace casualties for this year has since risen to 38, which is higher than the whole of 2021 (37).

A mandatory safety time-out was also conducted last month by MOM for companies in sectors that are deemed to be high risk.
