‘Safety’ at QVS work site
Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa Delta, BC, Canada
Satish Nakched has brought up a serious safety issue in the way the Indonesian soldiers are working, using bamboo scaffolding secured with ropes and not wearing a safety harness.
I believe that our Fijian authorities should step in and help resolve this issue. On a lighter note, we have seen movies where Asians use bamboos as scaffolds when they build houses, flats or offices a couple levels high. We have seen a lot of martial arts movies and those who have combined it with gymnastics, where people jump and swing on these bamboo scaffolds without it breaking. QVS students and teachers want the school rebuilt as soon as possible and the Indonesian soldiers know and trust their bamboo scaffold. The last time I was there, the only two level building in QVS was the school office block which had the library on the top floor. Could the relevant authority look into this issue please?
