Another person dies in lack of safety at work
Another work accident…. One person dies and another is injured.

KIBRIS POSTASI reports that another person has died in a work related accident in Famagusta. The metal scaffolding which collapsed on the Northland Construction site next to the Famagusta Yasam Hospital led to the death of one labourer and the injuring of another.

Mehmet Cetrez died and Rustem Razilolov was injured when the scaffolding they were on whilst painting collapsed. This is yet another example of the lack of work safety and security. Asked to comment Labour minister Aziz Gurpinar said the Health and Safety at Work law had been prepared and sent to parliament but work securities were insufficient on construction sites.
