May be pyramids, other monuments, palaces and fortresses, dams, bridges or modern high-rises – no one of the largest civil engineering feats of mankind has ever been achieved without the shedding of blood. To be honest, there is no prominent signs indicating that this trend will cease to continue worldwide. If you have ever been a part of the project on a large scale, you must admit that either you have seen death on duty your colleagues or you’ve heard of such an incident. Also, chances are that you have been able to save you a whisker or have been fortunate enough to be applied in place when you were down.
Does that mean that we should delay progress and go back to caveman lifestyle? Definitely not! So, what can be done to reduce the chances of death for our buildings? Is there any possibility for us to minimize the loss of life in the projects, especially in an age when medical science is pushing the limits towards a better future? Thanks to technology again, the answer is yes!
First of all, follow each and every standard security measures that are suggested by government agencies and industry experts. Every single employee team will be equipped with helmets, gloves, safety shoes, safety belts, head-mounted lamps standby fire-proof dresses and anything that increases their safety.

Also, it is not at all cost-effective proposition to depute another employee who will be totally useless and wasted resources, other than to keep watch over the security man at work.
The problem with such reasoning is that not all countries, territories and regions are well covered by wireless communication, especially if we think globally. The majority of projects carried out in such areas where wireless communication infrastructure is not paint a very encouraging picture. Under such circumstances, the safest bet is to do a survey of the area on the strength and reliability of wireless communication, before the company can only attack humans forced down warning bail-out calls.
