why must the public suffer from the incompetence and abysmal performance of DOSH?
why should taxpayers fund the salaries of DOSH when it has failed its objectives of looking after the public?
It's not only the construction company which must be investigated BUT also the entire DOSH, especially its inspectors, and the officer in the Ministry of Human Resources who oversights DOSH.
DOSH claims it is responsible for ensuring the safety, health and welfare of people at work as well as protecting other people from the safety and health hazards arising from the activities sectors which include:
- Mining and Quarrying
- Hotels and Restaurant
- Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing
- Transport, Storage and Communication
- Public Services and Statutory Authorities
- Utilities - Gas, Electricity, Water and Sanitary Services
- Finance, Insurance, Real Estate and Business Services
- Wholesale and Retail Trades
But when accidents after accidents occurred under DOSH watch, then its inspectors as well as the Director of DOSH and the officer in the Ministry of Human Resources who oversights DOSH must ALL collectively answer for such consistently abysmal performance (or lack of) in the department's responsibilities.
The Malaysian public had and have suffered from such irresponsible oversight. We don't wish to pay the salaries of incompetent public servants.
Now, the most important action by the government must be the immediate sacking of DOSH Director-general Datuk Ir. Mohtar Musri, to show that the government is SERIOUS about performance of its public servants.
Otherwise, posting the Director and possibly promoting him sideways in typical Malaysia-Boleh sickening evasion-from-responsible-stern-action is not unlike the transfer of an abusive teacher from one school to another.
