According to the Ministry of Occupational Safety and Health (MOM), a construction worker of Indian nationality was executing cable pulling duties when a steel stand that was supporting a cable drum fell way, causing a steel bar to hit him.

“During cabling works, the cable drum and the structure that it is supported by must be stable and secured,” stated MOM. This is a common safety measure.
