Another construction fatality

It has happened again, another workman has died at his workplace. It is a great shame. Let this not become just another statistic. Life is sacred. I can already see many people shrugging their shoulders and saying: “What can I do about it?” This is not right.

We should all be more aware of this situation and urge our elected representatives to pass stricter legislation in the interest of safety at work.

It seems that many construction workers are not provided with safety equipment and this must stop once and for all. There should be heavy fines for people neglecting such an important responsibility.

Of course, the enforcement of health and safety laws is absolutely essential, without which laws are useless.

I urge the public to speak up and demand action. Just imagine the terror the man who fell to his death went through. Just imagine the sorrow of his wife, his family, his parents and his relatives. How their lives have been darkened. We should all be saying: “No, no, never again, life is precious.”
