The risk of injuries in the construction industry is very high mainly because of the nature of the work carried out by different agencies employing largely unskilled workers. In India, a little over 16 per cent of the population depends on construction industry for its livelihood while 18.7 million persons are directly engaged in this sector. it is estimated that one out of every five persons employed into his industry suffers employment injury as adequate attention has not been given to safety and health. Government of India has enacted the Building and other construction workers (regulation of employment and conditions of service) Act 1996 and has framed central rules there under in November, 1998. The rules have not been framed yet by most of the state governments.
