Calls to review practice of transporting workers in lorries after 2 accidents

Lead director of the Alliance of Guest Worker Outreach (AGWO), Samuel Gift Stephen, has been talking to employers and workers about the issue recently. He said that the transport arrangements and drivers' working hours can vary widely depending on the companies' policy.

They do have to wake up very early, but some get to rest in the middle of the day.

"If it's made mandatory and made compulsory for every guest worker to be ferried up and down to the workplace with a bus, that will be the most ideal situation ... (but) cost is going to be one big factor," he said, adding that it is harder for small companies with fewer workers to afford this.
