Chinese Construction Worker Falls to his Death, Sihanoukville

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Wed Feb 13, 2019 1:18 pm

Sihanoukville, Cambodia News: Police say a Chinese man, a construction worker, died shortly after falling from a construction site at around 5 pm on February 12, 2019 at Group 47, Village 3, Sangkat 4, Sihanoukville Province.
The deceased was identified as HOU SHENGXING, a 40-year-old male Chinese construction worker, date of birth, 20.09.1978. It is reported that the man slipped while not wearing a safety harness, so he fell to the ground where he died almost instantly. The local authorities recently demanded that safety regulations be respected on the construction sites in Sihanoukville, after a number of fatal accidents involving both Cambodian and Chinese workers. Unfortunately, it seems that workers' safety is not a top priority with the construction site managers.
The body is being kept at Sihanoukville Referral Hospital, awaiting directions from the Chinese embassy. RIP.

So it is easy for Chinese unskilled labor to get work permits in the KoW? Would Pineapple be able to get one?
