A section of the St Julian's promenade was tempo- rality cordoned off on Monday after scaffolding at the old Barracuda building in Balluta leaned forward and was close to toppling onto the road. OHSA said an officer was immediately sent to the scene to ascertain that the scaffolding had been ren- dered safe and that it was properly anchored. "OHSA appeals to all stakeholders to work hand in hand in a concrete way to ensure that all workplaces are safe for all," the authority said in a statement. The authority appealed to the public to report any "hazardous work situations" to the OHSA immedi- ately, even if "even anonymously, so that hazards are controlled, and workers and third parties do not re- main in danger or at risk to life." The scaffolding leaned forward, causing a section of the promenade to be closed off until workers secured the structure The Occupational Health and Safety Authority sent officers on the site of the Barracuda restaurant in Balluta after scaffolding risked toppling into the road
