Repairman smokes and chit-chats while sitting on air-con compressor

STOMPer WK was shocked when he saw this repairman smoking and chatting to a colleague while sitting on a high-floor air-con compressor at Hougang. In an email to STOMP today (Jul 27), the STOMPer says: “These photos are taken at HDB Blk 55X in Hougang Street 51 today at about 6.20pm. “The air-con repairman was seen sitting on the compressor unit for about 10 to 15 minutes while servicing the unit. “During that period, he was also chatting with a co-worker and smoking. “The steel bracket seemed slightly tilted when the man sat on the unit. I was wondering if the bracket is designed to take the weight of man and the compressor unit. “Moreover, the man did not seem to be wearing any safety harness. “But even if he is wearing one, in the unfortunate event that the bracket gives way, the falling compressor unit might kill someone who is walking below it. “I note that this is a common practice in the air-con servicing industry. “When will the relevant authorities (like BCA, MOM etc) step in and stop such unsafe practices?”
