During the demolition of the building in Serdobsk town, Penza Region, concrete slabs collapsed. Under the rubble one of the workers was burried alive. Unfortunately, such incidents are not uncommon recently.
The accident occurred on March 19 in the afternoon, at Belinsky Street, 35. The workers were dismantling the concrete structure that collapsed in the process. Under the rubble was one of the workers. The Emergency service who arrived at the scene removed him from the wreckage but the man died from his wounds. At the moment, a check is being conducted on the fact of the death of a worker at the facility, and there is no information on its results so far.
There are statistics, though, for example, for 2018. We can learn from it that 21% of deaths at work occur in construction works. 13% of these accidents are caused by the construction fall, or collapse of materials, and 55% of them occurred due to poor work organization: violations of the work schedule and discipline, insufficient training of workers on labor protection and insufficient organization of production.
In 2019, we repeatedly wrote about similar cases that occurred at construction sites. in August 2019, a worker died in Novosibirsk in the collapse of the building. In Voronezh, the Investigation Committee was engaged in the accident investigation at a construction site. There was also the tragical death of an installer worker during the demolition of the CCM arena in St. Petersburg, captured by the camera that filmed the work.
Thus, the death of workers during in building construction or dismantling is a sad trend in the modern world. The capitalist way of organizing labor in the first place involves making profit by the master of production, which provokes the latter to reduce costs as much as possible, including the costs of ensuring the safety of workers. Capitalism does not kill us hypothetically; it kills people daily worse than any pandemic. Mankind has long developed a cure for this virus, but so far we have not collected enough determination to take it at the recommended dosage.
