Yeah,, no need to investigate, Hydrogen sulfide and methane caused

their quick lose of consciousness and repertory failure that in most cases

results in death.... they probably went down there without checking

for poisonous gases and without protections.... poor guys...

On my previous jobs wrote many confined space procedures. Continuous gas test for O2 and other gases. Two.radio contact with a posted guard. Safety belt if required to pull someone out in a hurry. Checklist for all involved.

Supply of fresh air via a air mover etc.

They here just don't have qualified personal and procedures to prevent these types of accidents in this country unless you work for big global companies that all.have standard operating procedures.

This appears to have been a rescue attempt by the four workers for a student who inadvertently fell into the sewer - and five people have died.

Besides having the right kind of detectors on them, could they not install them in certain points of the sewer ?  Sensors are becoming cheaper by the day.

A student fell into the sewer ?

 

How did that happen ?

 

If this is true, then 5 people have died because nobody bothered to place a barrier around the open sewer. 

 

Ignorance of basic safety and  lack of imagination by workers. leads to these types of tragedies again and again !

Such a common event here......no companies ever learn lessons....and more so if the lessons require costing.....CPF is an "elite" company,  and therefore will gain leniency from the authorities......nothing will happen to them and I'm sure the financial issues are being finalised right now........CPF will not give a fig!

Lessons learnt?.......Again zero!
