It’s 2017, still, labor safety is overlooked to save some money on repairing and maintenance. Jaipur witnessed on such incident recently. On Monday, 2:30 p.m., at World Trade Park, two laborers died while 4 got severely injured after falling from a height of 55 feet while repairing a leakage in the ceiling. It is being said they were made to work without security equipment like helmets and belts. The 2 maintenance officials involved have been booked under Section 304. One of the injured labor was consistently reminding his supervisor Kuldeep about the weak ladder, but he didn’t pay any attention to the warnings and insisted on increasing the height of the ladder, and as soon as it was moved, the entire structure collapsed, killing 40year-old Sandeep Payal and 30-year-old Narendra Jangid and injuring the other 4. The authorities involved have announced an exgratia payment of Rs 2.5 lakhs per person for the deceased’s family and Rs 1 lakh for the injured with their total medical needs. They have also constituted a committee to inquire about scaffolding failure. They believe it was a machine failure and not negligence.
