安全軽視で犯罪者へ手遅れになる前に \ Disregard for safety will be a big problem

Tittle : Has the handrail-preconstruction method taken hold yet?

It has been a long time since Japan was told to put safety first, but I have my doubts about the safety measures of relatively small private-sector construction projects. As someone with long experience in public works, I feel a difference in on-site awareness, which is unfortunate. The situation at this site is such that there is no site supervisor, safety equipment is not used properly, and a fall would surely cause serious physical damage to the organs.


In recent years, attention tends to focus on the latest technology, but I think more attention should be paid to safety measures and construction procedures. Therefore, I myself observe these points when I visit a construction site. I would like to see the Labor Standards Bureau get more involved in the work site.
Because everything happens on site. I would like the Labor Standards Bureau to actually observe the actual work site and recognize the reality, and then work with the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW), which is the supervising ministry that coordinates safety measures, to come up with effective measures.




I believe that people who can proactively identify problems, plan countermeasures, execute them, and produce results are needed today. This may sound obvious, but there are very few people who are truly capable of doing this. If you don't use your head and think hard, you won't be able to survive in the future, and you will end up as a mediocre human resource. In other words, they can be replaced.
