Construction, manufacturing riskiest jobs in Indonesia

Construction and manufacturing are the two sectors that contribute the most to workplace accident figures in Indonesia, according to the Public Works and Public Housing Ministry’s findings.

The ministry’s construction directorate general secretary Panani Kesai said that around 32 percent of workplace accidents nationwide happened in the two sectors.

The transportation sector contributed to 9 percent of workplace accidents, the forestry sector 4 percent and the mining sector 2 percent.

“Construction failures usually happen in two situations. First during the construction process that may lead to work-related accidents, second in the post-construction or maintenance period,” Panani said as quoted by Antara news agency on Friday.

He cited the Kutai Kertanegara bridge collapse in East Kalimantan in November 2011, which occurred because of construction failure. The incident took the lives of several road users.

Other fatal workplace accidents include the Sultan Hasanudin aircraft hangar collapse in March 2015, a crane collapse during a normalization project on the Ciliwung River in October 2015 and the Dompak bridge deck collapse in the same month.

"Our findings, based on the facts in the field, show that they have failed to properly implement the workplace health and safety management system [SMK3]. This means there is a lack of concern on the issue," Panani said.

The findings were further confirmed by the ministry’s evaluation of its own projects taking place on the country’s six biggest islands. As of October 2015, Panani said that the SMK3 had yet to be implemented in the projects to a “safe” level.

“Therefore, we must implement the SMK3 more seriously. We must keep developing the SMK3 standards, monitoring the implementation and preparing tools to make sure the standards are well-implemented,” he concluded. --The Jakarta Post

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
