Maid perched on the roof of building as she cleaned windows
The Ministry of Manpower confirmed that it was investigating the incident
The Ministry of Manpower is investigating after a domestic worker was photographed trying to clean windows at an apartment while perched precariously on the sloping roof of a two-story building.
News website STOMP carried pictures of the woman cleaning French windows on the first-floor roof in Loyang Avenue on Monday evening. The reader who supplied the pictures, referred to as Vernon, said the maid should have been given a cleaning stick so she did not jeopardize her safety.
Responding to inquiries by The Straits Times, the Ministry of Manpower said it had learned of the incident and was investigating.
