Working conditions in India II

People of India 6, originally uploaded by Azchael.

As established in a prior post, lack of preventive measures, lack of adequate response measures, low concert of safety on site are the situation present in India at the moment.
Take this photo as an example: 4 workers allegedly work for a subcontractor of the NDMC, the New Delhi Municipal Council, on a road-side construction work. None of the workers wears adequate protective safety equipment suitable for roadside construction work, e.g. helmet, reflective vest, strong boots and there seems to be no warning signs on the road itself. All of these measures would have preventive character and lead to a heightened risk of accident for these four workers.
