2 die in Faridabad building collapse – The Times of India: NEW DELHI: Two people died and three others were injured when an under-construction building came crashing down in Faridabad’s Sarurpur Industrial area on Saturday. There were several people working at the site at 12.30pm, when the incident occurred and rescue operations went on till past 10pm. “The incident occurred when the roof of the building, possibly a factory, was being laid. The scaffolding that was supporting the more than 100 sq feet roof area was probably not able to withstand the weight and gave way, because of which the roof came crashing down. At that point around 35-40 people were working at the site. The debris was massive and we are not sure how many people could be trapped underneath,” said police sources.

The Employers’ Liability Change Is Misconceived

Share

They used to complain about government by press release with ill-thought out and rushed knee-jerk legislation being introduced as a result of some headline or another. But in October we got what is in my view even worse than that: government by stealth when they proposed an innocent-looking little amendment to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill which was by then at its committee stage in the Commons. The new clause to which I am referring would in effect take away strict liability in civil litigation for breach of employer health and safety legislation. My problem with this isn’t the good intentions behind the move but the way it was done both procedurally and in substance.
