Question of safety

Serafina Silaitoga
Tuesday, September 02, 2014

RENOVATION work to prevent any mishaps or possible accidents to members of the public at a Labasa building, housing a supermarket has started.

This follows a notice issued by the Ministry of Lands in July to the owner of the supermarket building —Bashir Khan — that a structure built to accommodate freezing equipment on the roof is hazardous and a danger to people's safety.

Mr Khan told this newspaper that he had no choice but to go ahead with renovation work because the structure remains on the roof.

He said he had liaised with the Ministry of Labour and was also informed, via letter in July that it was his responsibility to keep the building in sound construction.

Mr Khan said notices received from the government departments had forced him to carry out necessary work.
