Contractor Koh Brothers says work on the Downtown Line Bugis Station will resume if two safety conditions are met.
First, a recovery plan is endorsed by a professional engineer to safely remove the collapsed scaffolding.
Second, revised risk assessments and safe work procedures are submitted.
The Manpower Ministry had ordered a stop to all formwork and concreting works at the worksite yesterday, immediately after the accident which left two workers dead and 8 injured.
Koh Brothers says it will work with its sub-contractor to devise welfare measures for workers and families affected by the accident.
The two workers killed are 31-year-old Dou Chunjie and 48-year-old Meng Huaiyou.
Both men were from China.
The eight injured workers have all been discharged from hospital.
