A 31 year old electrician, Sunil Balgobin, died less than 24 hours after he fell from a scaffold on Monday, while 17-year-old Dinesh Rampersad was entombed in cement on Saturday. TCL chief executive officer, Rollin Bertrand, said it was the first time that such tragic incidents have occurred within a mere two days of each other. TCL said it has implemented measures to ensure that all contractors are re-oriented in maintaining the highest standards of safety at the factory.
