HA NOI (VNS) — The main cause of the hoist collapse which killed five workers and seriously injured another in the central city of Da Nang last week was its misuse, an official said.

Tran Van Dung, chief inspector of Da Nang's Construction Department said that the hoist is designed to carry people but was used to carry goods when the accident occurred.

The Ministry of Construction has urged the Da Nang People's Committee to closely monitor the technical operation of the hoist and follow regulations on its use and operation to ensure labour safety at construction sites.

Construction Minister Trinh Dinh Dung asked local authorities to strictly impose punishment on individuals and organisations found violating labour safety regulations. — VNS
