Few are the occupations that are more perilous, like the construction industry. The safety regulations are based on the four leading causes of death or injury of construction company workers. These are falls, electrocution, entrapment between objects, and being struck by objects. A cursory look at these causes and we'd immediately see that they are actually easily preventable with the observance of some diligence.
To enforce these safety regulations, the DHA (Dubai Health Authority) is given visitorial powers to inspect any construction site at any time. The safety of the construction company workers is of paramount concern, and all means should be exhausted to ensure a safe working environment for them, or at the very least, the safest that can be possibly attained.
But the DHA should not be the only entity who should observe the prescribed safety precautions. Much of the responsibility also devolves upon the construction company and the workers themselves. The construction company is expected to faithfully observe the laws to guarantee a safer working environment for their workers. Also, the construction company is expected to take measures of its own to adapt to the particular conditions it is working with so that the safety of its workers would better be ensured.
The workers on the other hand are expected to exercise due care and diligence with their work. They are expected to take their job responsibly and take all necessary precautions to minimize, if not completely avoid, the dangers of their profession. If there are precautions that are not prescribed but are, to their better judgment, the best routes to take, they should have the full disposition to pursue the same or at the very least, the good sense to consult with the construction company regarding the matter.
