BANGALORE: Five construction workers at software major Infosys building in
Electronic City were crushed to death on Wednesday morning when the building
collapsed.

The five labourers Nagaraj, Tirupathi, Ramesh, Nagappa and Vijaykumar all
in their 20's were working on a massive glass facade. All the workers
hailed from Raichur district. The labourers were working on the sixth floor
when the incident occurred. All five were taken to the St John's Hospital.

Three other workers Gafoor, Venkappa and Biju were admitted in a
critical condition, said Mabel Vasnaik of St John's Hospital.

The DCP (south-east) Soumendu Mukherjee said they had registered cases under
Section 304 A for causing death due to negligence. A post mortem will be
conducted on Thursday, added the police.

What is of interest to us is the cause of
accident,negletful site safety precautions even in
such High Tech Environment.The management owe an
explanation to the society for such a tragic event.It
is not the Contractor only the Client primarily owes
responsibility for safety of workers.Construction
organisation will look forward for a detailed
report.We need not look towards West to bring in
Safety measures at site.

To avoid the disasters in  constructions  done by unorganised
contractors :

I feel that civil construction of any magnitude from small housing
to bigger ones  must be properly
documented and signed by competent engineer ( at least
Dploma -civil engg) who should supervise/ inspect the work
---,if not regularily( due to small project size/fimancial constraints)
then in stages .
The standard formats shall be made available giving the
necessary checks/checl list  at every stage of constuction and
these shall be signed .
checks shall be documented for:
i) Founding Level ---  The foundation level must be
checked at site  and signed . This will solve many problems
of   construction indusry.
ii) Fondation reinf  plcement, cover etc
iii) column reinf  placement

The above is very important because any error in foundation
is difficult to rectify.

iii) check for  centring staging adequacy - to avoid mishap during const.

iv) slab /Beam reinf  at each Floor / Roof Level

v) curing of works  etc etc

A system of mandatory checksshall be enforced to ensure
that construction is done in a responsible way  to avoid
disasters as reported time to time. The Architect involved
must  hire a part time/full time  experienced supervision
consultant -at least diploma civil--- to fulfill the  above.
