Sir, Time and again I read in Construction News of the awful accidents that occur on building sites all over the country.The August 26 issue made particularly sad reading ('Five killed in black week for construction').
I know nothing of the details of these accidents, but could it be something as simple as poor eyesight that causes them - at least in part? You rarely see a building worker who wears glasses. Should eye tests be made compulsory for all construction employees?
Or would such a measure be difficult in practice to implement or police?
