Construction site is a place which is full of tools, cement, other construction related stuff and lots of danger. Labors are humans we all know! But this is high time the contractors must realize that the security of labors and their families. There should be a mandatory rule for the labors to buy insurance and the contracting company must sponsor it. The era has changed and these days things seems quite easy ‘like I can do that too kind’ but in real doing work practically is a different story.
Like there are certain factors in construction industry which cannot be ignored and there are no alternatives for any of it (a bitter truth) for example: scaffolding and rope access one has to include these two factors in the business no matter how much the contractor thinks it is dangerous. Imagine for a minute how a human body is like honestly step by step, firstly bones are structured accordingly and properly then joined properly with correct size, shape and cut then place all the organs accurately in order to let the body function and then cover the bone structure with tissues and muscles and skin. Then yes color can be selected to give it a perfect touch. Now think of a construction props Sydney the bone structure process (putting the base of the building with iron, steel , cement and lots of bricks) cannot be done by the labor with their feet on the ground definitely they have to climb on something in order to put the bricks on the top one by one. This pillar and structure making study is known as structural engineering and is something related to the oldest form of engineering, scaffolding my fellows! Is the answer of how a labor can place brick by brick on a building?
We were discussing security of the labors (no offense to any contracting company) but here we are referring to those companies which are actually not considering the life of the labors seriously. There are some laws and rules which must be followed by the companies to get the job done, below are some list of the gears which labors must be provided with: Helmet: It’s a basic thing which every labor must wear in order to protect the head from any kind of injury, especially when a labor is working during a mobile scaffold towers, they must remain vigilant otherwise loss could be irreparable. Steel toe boots: this is so obvious and can be examined by anybody that most of the contractors provide normal shoes to their labors, but the basic thing to provide to the labor is a steel toe shoe. Nobody knows how many open nails are there on the construction site. Imagine if any single nail cross inside out of a labor’s food (think it’s sound painful right?) it must be ascertained that the security of the labors is the first priority on the site.
