Health Hazard To Employees At Resorts World Sentosa Casino

2010 saw the opening of 2 casinos in Singapore. It was supposed to lift the country’s economy and create jobs for Singaporeans. However, it seems that the welfare of the workers at Resorts World Sentosa Casino is not well taken care of.

Resorts World Sentosa Casino is split into 2 sections: a smoking section and a non-smoking section. Employees are rotated between the sections, regardless of whether they smoke or not. Breathing in second hand smoke thus becomes a serious job hazard to all the workers in the Casino.

Today, smoking is banned in almost all overseas casinos. Even Macau imposed an island-wide ban on smoking in casinos 3 years ago. As a Singaporean, I can’t help but feel disappointed by the government’s lack of action. Surely it cannot be acceptable to prioritize the convenience of smokers over the health of Singaporean workers.

It is not difficult to build designated smoking rooms for smokers to light up in isolation. In fact, this has become the norm for casinos across US, Europe, and much of Asia. I think it is about time that Resorts World follow suit. And if it doesn’t, then the onus should be on the Singapore government to step in and protect the welfare of its citizens.

    Met a young china lady working in one of these classino.

    She complained of being “treated like a slave”….non stop long working hours.

    She said her levy which her boss pays is OVER $1,000 dollars per month.

    If you guys care to go into MOMmy website,….levies that are that “High” means that the RATIO of “Foreigner employee is Higher than Local employee by many times” !!!!

    SO,….going by what our “Pap G” claims,….it would mean that “all these talks of more jobs to locals”…ARE BULLSHIT talks !!!!

    Suggest we VTO in the next “ERECTION” !!!

    NO wonder we were labelled “Dafts” ????

    “2010 saw the opening of 2 casinos in Singapore. It was supposed to lift the country’s economy and create jobs for Singaporeans.” Huh, really meh? Seems more foreign workers inside leh, esp. M’sians. Secondly, if Singapore economy is good with the two casinos, then why still got all sorts of price hikes (non-stop one lah), increase of GST from 3 to 5 to 7 to 9% very soon, delaying of our CPF withdrawal age still buai song, then detemine how they want to pay us by monthly instalment according to their computation. Then create mandatory MediShield Life insurance to con us is it?

  • NotMyProblem:

    Employees can sue the Casino?

    PAP sees cash, it forgets everything, healthy or unhealthy. After all PAP is not the one taking in the second hand smoke.

    We know there are two laws in Singapore.

  • only in PAP-run Singapore:

    Resorts World Sentosa Casino is able to get away with that because our civil servants have allowed it.

    The civil servants overseeing our work environment are of low Third World caliber, reflected in the low standard they have set in safety regulations, even if they are paid the highest salaries in the world. The appalling health hazards faced by RWS workers is but another manifestation of their ineptness.

    We have seen how they have allowed foreign guest workers to be ferried precariously on our roads.

    Or how safety measures were not in place or enforced resulting many workplace accidents including many fatalities.

    You don’t see that in other First World countries, or even Third World countries as mentioned by the writer, only in PAP-run Singapore.

    They can’t say they are not aware of it since RWS is such a popular and high profile resort.

    Or maybe they are (unaware of it). Those civil servants paid humongous salaries and bonuses overseeing them probably have many other worldly distractions on their minds. What are the new menus on the next Cordon Bleu class?

  • pap PA paid IBs from Msia:

    actually over 95% of the employees are non Sporeans.

    pap lied when it said the 2 casinos create jobs for Sporeans. NOT true at all.

    pap has stopped talking about Sporeans employed by the 2 casinos. because paper cannot cover fire and pap has run out of bigger lies to cover the smaller lies.

  • Chinese no unity:

    Heavy smoker men are weaklings.
    I prove to you now undebunkably :
    If you want him to sark your cork , or betray his country, easy. Just lock him up for one week without cigarettes. He will be feeling like living in hell.

    A non smoker man won’t.

    If you ask him to Sark I return for a puff of smoke, he will.

    This is the weakness of men on drugs.

    From a National Defence perspective, cigarettes should be banned to prevent new soldiers also becoming weaklings. Caught by enemy they will betray Singapore for a puff of smoke.

  • Mantoux Test TB:

    Silly opposition politicians still never understood what is TB and how come in the past TB was declared as being eradicated from Singapore but now there are so many cases.

    Please learn what is Latent TB and how this could explode causing the disease to spread and how easily this latent form can be screened.

    Foreigners coming here to work should be screened. Many mistaken x-ray as able to screen latent TB. It only detects erupted TB thru scars in the lungs.

    I have been speaking about this for years and still opposition politicians never understood this is an issue.

  • You Die Your Own Business:

    Rich tourists are increasingly sidestepping Sillyplace as choice of destination. Regional fake tourists are flocking here to seek out opportunistic work, driving up the tourist arrival data that shitty times happily trumpeted to hookwink dafts.
    The local jobless frogs are still croaking the happy tune dipping in a boiling well. How many of these have the courage to jump out to seek out the cool truth?

    This is not accurate, more likely for stupid western countries.
    Our clowns not that dumb, they get into politics to pay themselves and to get into businesses to be further enriched. They rally their own cause and protect their own businesses stolen through privatization of state wealth.
    They lobby only for themselves and their circle of trusted cronies.

  • Vote wisely:

    To make money, anything can do.
    That is why 2 casinos are built here. Maybe more in the future … because PAP is short of money, has to raise GST, and more Singaporeans are losing their jobs … and more casinos are needed to create better jobs for Singporeans, newly converted included.
    If Singapore didn’t build, other countries will and make money.
    If employees do not like to work in smoking areas, there is the door … this is PAP style … many foreign talents are queuing up to work there.
    Casinos do not have to pay million dollars to get Yes men and women like PAP, just above the S pass threshold will do.
    This is PAP land this is Singapore PAP has built.

    Why buy replenish submarines, maintenance and manpower surely very huge and super expensive?
    And when will it put to use?
    How and why will it be used?
    How will a submarine fit or feature in local sporadic up and down tiffs and quarrels.
    Who is really the driving force behind it?
    Really necessary?
    Unless arms twisted and coerced?
    By whom?
    They are staging and setting and keeping you rich to ensure perpetual increasing revenues to upkeep the “war” machineries and paraphernalias.
    Meaning stuck to be at the beck and call and dictated and commanded by somebody powerful always, who will not take “no” for an answer.
    So this powerful power will want and set in place and see to it that they have in you a compliant obedient submissive team to remain and stay in local power to be easily maneuvered and to do their bidding.
    They will help you to stay in power.
    How else could you read the positioning and situation.
    Who pulls the strings from behind to keep the locally kept hardwares and the software that’s goes with it?
    This is perpetual recurring expense?
    At whose expense, who benefits, who are the beneficiaries?
    These are “war machines.”
    What wastage, such monies and time and efforts could be put to better other uses.
    On the other hand you become “poor” overnight should you oppose them.
    Positioning is important.
    Trapped and no way out?
