Chemical company fined $200k over chlorine leak, Singapore News & Top Stories
A company was fined $200,000 for a chlorine leak incident on Sept 4, 2016, in which seven people were taken to hospital.

In a statement yesterday, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) said that Chemical Industries (Far East) had pleaded guilty to a charge under the Workplace Safety and Health Act for failing to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety and health of the people involved.

An MOM spokesman told The Straits Times last night that the company pleaded guilty in court on Sept 14 and was fined the same day.

The incident involved a chlorine leak in a cylinder stored in Chemical Industries' Jalan Samulun chlorine storage facility in Tuas.

The leak triggered an alarm from one of the facility's chlorine detectors and a worker activated the chlorine gas emergency scrubber and exhaust system. Two workers donned protective equipment and attempted to stop the leak but were unsuccessful. Chemical Industries then called the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) for help at around 9.20am.
