Regulations

According to the research, the employer does not provide a proper and secure environment for the construction. Workers at the constructions discuss following violations:

There are not enough technical clothing. Workers are not provided with helmets, protective belts, no netting on the construction, lift shafts are open and unprotected.
Technical equipment is not checked.
Employer does not provide workers with safety instructions and does not monitor the work process.

In most cases, employers have no signed agreements at all. And the employer has no legal responsibility towards the workers. Companies often take advantage of the situation and make an ultimatum: ask the family members of the injured or deceased to cease the case in exchange for compensation.
