Workplace death at the construction site of Copen Grand executive condominium EC in Tengah

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) were alerted to a workplace accident at the construction site of Copen Grand EC at Tengah Garden Avenue on Tuesday about 4.35pm.

A 32-year-old Indian foreign worker and his colleagues were unloading steel bars from a lorry crane. During the process, the boom of the lorry crane fell abruptly and struck the Indian foreign worker. He was pinned against the lorry bed, said the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).

He was pronounced dead on site by a SCDF paramedic.

A 45-year-old man was arrested for allegedly causing death by a negligent act, SPF said.

The main contractor and builder, Woh Hup, has been ordered by MOM to stop all lifting operations involving lorry cranes.

There have been 44 workplace fatalities this year and MOM takes a serious view of workplace safety breaches.

The developer of the executive condominium is Taurus Properties SG, a joint venture between City Developments Limited (CDL) and MCL Land. 

Copen Grand is a 99 years leasehold Executive Condominium at Tengah Garden Walk with a total of 639 units. There are 12 blocks with 14 storeys high.

The expected Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) of Copen Grand is December 2027.
