Because large construction projects can often occur in areas of high human density, it is crucial that there are proper safety measures in place to ensure that: (1) nothing goes terribly wrong; and (2) if something does go wrong, there are means of protecting the safety of bystanders. Unfortunately, these goals are not always met. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert construction site accident attorney at 617-787-3700.
Israel’s largest workers’ union has recently announced a strike in response to alleged dangerous working conditions they have bene subjected to on various construction sites. The result of these poor conditions has led to 37 deaths from the beginning of 2018. In addition, 154 Israeli workers have been injured in the same time frame, 38 of which have been serious. All government ministries, local authorities, banks, firefighting and rescue services, the Israel Airports Authority and all the organized employers in the private sector are expected to take part in the strike.
Union chairman Avi Nissenkrom hopes for a quick resolution to the problem, although he has noted that if no agreement is reached, the workers are prepared for a prolonged strike. Demands include a safer standard for scaffolding, as well as improved harnessing gear and more general oversight of construction site operations.
