SINGAPORE: The Migrant Workers' Centre (MWC) said its first concern lies with the victim, who died when a private bus hit him at the junction of Race Course Road and Hampshire Road on Sunday night.
The victim is 33-year-old Indian national construction worker Sakthivel Kumaravelu.
Channel NewsAsia understands he was working for scaffolding company Heng Hup Soon.
MWC said it is in touch with the man's employer to ensure that all necessary support is provided, and it is also trying to reach the man's family.
It added that Sunday night's incident showed the importance of outreach to all foreign workers to ensure a harmonious co-existence, adding that it will be stepping up efforts in its engagement process.
MWC will also do its part to provide legal assistance and emotional support to affected workers.
MWC chairman Yeo Guat Kwang said: “We must realise this is a group of workers who come from different cultures and backgrounds. It is important for us to continue to engage them, share with them and let them understand our social norms.
“If they have any issues at the workplace, or if they face any problems, please don't take matters in your own hands, please come to us and we will give you necessary support and assistance.”
