Ms He Ting Ru asked the Minister for Home Affairs (a) for each quarter in the last year, how many accidents are reported involving workers being transported in the back of lorries and other vehicles; and (b) of these, how many involved casualties and deaths respectively.
Mr K Shanmugam: The Traffic Police are only able to provide data on accidents involving passengers of lorries which resulted in casualties or deaths (relevant accident). It does not track the occupation of the passengers, if they are workers or otherwise, or if they are specifically seated in the front or the rear of the lorry. Please see Table 1 below.
