HDB hacking works will need trained workers from next year
Come next year, contractors working on Housing Board flats would not only need to be accredited, but also possess trained workers.
The tightening of this regulation was revealed in a HDB statement on Thursday.
Currently, HDB flat owners who want to renovate their property are required to find a registered contractor, as well as seek the agency's approval before works begin.
In some cases, the untrained workers jeopardise key structural walls during the hacking works.
