24 Year Old Woman Dies After Falling a Part of Concrete on her at Ameerpet Metro Station
Construction Business is the fastest growing industry in the world. Maintaining safety standards while constructing any project is very important and some people believe that the government should define code for building projects and the minimum acceptable quality. Every project should be checked and evaluated at every stage starting from design to fitting electrical wiring. Approval of construction of any project should be withheld if any inferiority is found at any stage. Else one would find rare accidents at construction sites or after building the whole project.
