According to MOM, the parking space for the bus was occupied by ComfortDelGro Bus, and the employer of the worker is Singapore Towing Equipments.

MOM has ordered the employer to stop all their vehicle towing from non-public roads and building premises while the accident is under investigation.

They clarified that employers and supervisors must conduct safety assessments and ensure that their workers are aware of the safety measures required during the guiding of vehicle’s movements in tight spaces.

They added that traffic management plans must also be in place, with clearly demarcated parking areas and the use of humps, convex mirrors and signs to manage blind spots.
