Construction Mishap

Friday, January 28, 2011

My parents are constructing a building in our hometown for a project so these days, our conversations are almost always about it. From permits, to demolition of old house, to hardware like industrial pumps, to the finishing & furnishings when the building is done. Of course safety of the workers is a priority too. We want to avoid mishaps like the one happened in Makati yesterday morning. The service elevator in the site gave way, fell from 32nd to 7th floor. At least 10 were instantly killed in the accident. While something like this is unlikely to happen because ours isn’t high-rise, everyone in the compound must follow safety precautions.
