I hope both maldives and high commision india will work together to avoid this type of incidents. Please all civil/site engineers, do not allow your workers to do the work without safety equipments and please monitor them apart from work also. Thank you.

          Construction safety is very poor in this country, a strict regulation should brought as without SAFETY BELT, SHOES AND HELMET no site should be allowed for construction.
