MANILA, Philippines — Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III has ordered a labor safety inspection of the Skyway extension project after a construction accident killed at least one person and injured four others on Saturday.

A steel girder or support beam from a portion of the Skyway freeway in Muntinlupa fell on vehicles on the East Service Road.


Skyway contractor EEI Corp. said a crane that was being positioned for its next task tilted and fell on the girder.

“I have ordered an inspection to see if they are compliant with occupational safety and health standards,” Bello said on Sunday.
