Working Conditions in India V – Building construction

Construction support, originally uploaded by Azchael.

Another example of lack of safety measures: Only wooden bars are used without real guiding rail to speak off, no boards between the bars to support walking or other balance-requiring tasks.

Furthermore, as also mentioned in the previous post, 2nd hand bricks are being used in this construction and not even good quality ones as can be seen from the window construction on the lower left part of the photo. Bricks are broken, and more or less fitted into the open space, thereafter plastered irrespective of whether the bricks fill out the hole or not.

As responsible project manager such conditions are not to be allowed at your project and suitable site supervisors have to ensure that quality standards are met!
