Who’s Stealing My Lunch – Keep Calm and Get Organised

Who’s Stealing My Lunch – Keep Calm and Get Organised

There are many lessons that can be drawn from the recent Brexit vote. One of them is that the British people, including the middle-class, seem to be pushing back against domination of the global economy by the rich and powerful through the guise of free trade. This has resulted in the exploitation of workers and left the average...

国家发展部应对电梯事故做详尽交代

国家发展部应对电梯事故做详尽交代

最近,政府组屋电梯发生了一系列事故。新加坡民主党对此表示关注。这些电梯事故不仅造成几人受伤,还导致一人身亡。最近所发生的事故包括: 2015年10月14日,裕廊:电梯门卡住,扯断一名85岁老妇的手掌。 2016年1月23日,榜鹅:电梯内门没有关上,电梯却继续运行。 2016年3月6日,宏茂桥:一架电梯因制动器失灵而直冲17楼,导致一名电梯乘客受困长达1个半小时。 2016年5月15日,巴西立:电梯卡住。电梯门打开时没有与地面对齐,结果一名轮椅阿伯摔倒而不治身亡。 2016年6月7日,武吉班让:一架电梯像悠悠球(yo-yo)一样地突上突下,从9楼突降到1楼,然后又直冲上11楼,再往下降到3楼,最后升到12楼。这起事故结果造成一名59岁妇女脊椎骨折。 2016年6月10日,盛港:电梯突然在一股强烈的震动后停顿下来,之后又猛降几层楼才完全停下来。 去年10月发生了裕廊老妇断掌事故后,该区议员尚达曼副总理呼吁提升电梯安全水平。 他要求一个强而有力的审查机制以监督维修承包商的例行检查。他补充道:“我们需要培养零意外的文化……特别是涉及电梯问题这方面。” 裕廊不幸事故发生至今已经超过半年,然而电梯安全问题始终悬而未决。这些问题不仅造成电梯搭客受伤,甚至还夺走了一条人命。 尽管国家发展部长黄循财在今年三月时做出了保证,他的部门“绝对不能向安全妥协”。 为什么过了这么久之后,黄先生才向公众公布他的部门所将采取的应对措施?难道不能更迫切地采取更严格的措施吗?所造成的人命伤亡是可以避免的吗? 民主党吁请国家发展部即刻采取措施避免同样事故发生。发展部也应该立即公布一份详尽报告,列明全岛电梯在维修方面所进行的工作项目。报告应该公开电梯制造商的名字以及制造商的原产国以及生产地。 陈两裕 副主席 新加坡民主党  Read More →
