Singapore shipyards hit for safety shortfalls

Singapore: Officers from the Ministry of Manpower have uncovered a raft of shortfalls in safety standards at shipyards here.
Of the 40 shipyards spot-checked so far, an unspecified one has been ordered to 'down tools'. The checks follow a string of shipyard accidents that have left five people dead and 18 others hurt in three weeks. [27/6/08]
