Contracting company should not allow any worker to work without safety boot, safety belt or helmet. These kind of workers do not care about their life but want to complete the assigned work is any situation.
Every day we heard this news that worker dies fallen from high rise building in Dhaka and other areas of Bangladesh. Contractors may be wants to complete his site in time. Nobody care about these construction workers life, there is no punishment after happening these incidents, again worker start work. Workers do not care also. Worker should think about their valuable life.
Every construction site should has safety consultant, safety officer would be on the rounding duty from ground to top floor to check who is violating safely rules. In development country, nobody is allowed to go inside the construction site without helmet.
Organizations and associations related to building construction should take initiatives to make awareness to let workers understand importance of safety inside under construction site.
