MOM said that it is crucial that forks be inserted below a load when using forklifts, and to make sure the load is stable before raising it for transfers so as to prevent any accidental toppling of the load.

The 45 workplace fatalities this year have already exceeded last year’s 37 deaths and is the highest since 2016, when 66 deaths were recorded.
