It is not uncommon to witness a horrific and fatal accident around construction sites in Ethiopia.

There was one on Monday in Bole District. It could only have been demoralising and painful for individuals to find colleagues, who were alive and well a minute ago, now dead. It is even more so when such incidents occur as a result of inadequate safeguards to protect against hazards by employers and poor enforcement by the authorities.
