Dear Dipil,

Thanks for the sharing a information with us. I will check with some friends who working on metro projects if receive any info on this matter will share with you all. The only good thing is no injuries reported Thank god.

If they go through investigation they will say They are not followed proper installation method, Its not installed or maintained by competent person, Poor design, etcc.., They need to understand its all preventable.

They hire safety peoples for that project without experience (Because of budget) Im not saying we are experienced but at least we know what we want to do. Most of accidents happens due to management and senior managers they are failed to prepare budget on the projects. You will ask to your top management regarding safety budget is the low budget in all projects. Management suppose to think and ask to senior managers; Senior managers suppose to explain everything instead of saying in last minute we dont have budget.

I promised as a safety guy they (Metro project guyz) getting trouble from factory of inspectorate now they will dig everything where is your plan, when it was approved, where is your monthly report, quarterly report, training documents, certificates for everything, but I dont know why always our factory of inspectorate are RE-ACTIVE???.
