Liew Chin Wah: Preventing Death and Injury in Singapore

About six years ago, one of Liew Chin Wah’s friends died after falling into a drain. Therefore, when Mr. Wah, age 69 in 2012, saw some drain holes with their covers missing (the covers were replaced by rotting, unsafe pieces of wood) along Woodlands Industrial Park E7 in Singapore, he took action to make sure that no one would die or be injured.

The wooden tabletops made safe, sturdy covers for the drains until they could be replaced with permanent drain covers.
