    Forget lost time accidents, what about lost time lives? - by Sean Cronin, ITP.net, United Arab Emirates
    The absence of a prosecuting health and safety watchdog in many Gulf states means that construction workers who are killed in site accidents fall into what is a statistical black hole. They really are ‘the forgotten’.

    And what of these investigations that we are told about so often in the hours or days after a fatal site accident?

    When the investigations are completed what do they say, where are they filed, who writes them and more importantly, who reads them?

    We sure don’t.
