Especially within the construction industry, where the odds are worse!
Being an unorganized sector, the fatality rate within the construction sector is higher as compared to the national average of other industries. Risks involved here range from – being caught in between malfunctioning machineries or equipment, getting electrocuted due to exposed wires, falling from height or tipping over ladders or getting struck by an object caused due to negligence to name a few. The fatalities are a result of compromised quality in the machinery or the equipment sourced, sheer carelessness due to lack of adequate safety training or simply an absence of safety culture. An alarming rate of on-site accidents reported over the years, serves as a wake-up call for safety regulators, government agencies and industry influences to reconsider the safety norms mandated at construction sites.
