Housewife fined $46k after maids spotted working on scaffolding outside house

$46k... Not a small amount.

The Straits Times understands that this is the first case in which a person is convicted for breaching work pass conditions involving the work safety of maids, after the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act was amended in 2012 with enhanced penalties

It seems the owner provided enough safety measures leh:

“The Indonesians performed the task on Oct 11 and 13, with the help of safety belts, masks, gloves and an extended wiper.“

Ms Shanty said that the scaffold did not have required features such as proper guardrails.

"That same month, Brest asked contractors to set up another scaffold at the back of her house for maintenance work. They declined to do so and instead, delivered to her home components for an unerected scaffold."

Huh, this is not simple...why did the contractors decline?

Any house at Cluny Park costs upwards of $50m, I reckon!

Only big GCBs there, no small 15,000 sqft plots there.

LWL owns one there as well.

U can read up on WSH on height regulation. My workplace is quite strict on this. They don't allowed safety belt but full body harness

Yes. U r right. Any collapse of the scaffolding need to have someone's head to be rolled.
