Of course! But the cost should not be placed on the shoulders of the workers. This of course would cost the companies more, and might deduct it to the salaries of employees.
Yes sure ! There should be proper health n safety regulations for workers . They should be treated as important part of company and construction work . Nowadays everywhere we see construction work going on but not sure if all of them are following the rules or not . Safety and health of worker will influence work and time taken to complete the project so it’s really very important to make sure they are fit and happy to proceed the work .
This is of no doubt. Every worker may it be at the construction site or at the medical field., they are risking their lives to earn their living. Comsidering the situatiin higher authorities must take keen interest in life guarding their lives. Regular health checkups, distribution of personal protective equipments and prompt medical facilities and care must be provided to the workers. In case of an emergency health situation immediate medical mangement services must be provided to the workers. There are many workers specially who work at the construction site who visit the hospitals with symptoms of lung diseases due to the inhalation of smoke and dust, due to improper eating habits people develop heart diseases and gastrointestinal problems. Healthy foods must be provided and utmost care to be takem regarding food hygiene. Insurance policies must be revised and lives of workers must be safe guarded.
