Toughest Construction Job In The World?
24 June 2011
One of our customers sent us an interesting link to maybe the toughest construction job going at the moment.
Chinese workers have been tasked with building a 3ft-wide path made of wooden planks on the sheer cliff face of a mountain that is thousands of feet high.
The Shifou Mountain in Hunan Province, where they are building the pathway, stands vertical at 90 degrees without any slopes or alcoves.
We also saw this as a video news article - Construction cliff work 'not for the faint-hearted' - and were very surprised at how few safety measures are in place. In addition, this video does not show what they have in place for convenience and refreshment for the workers.
You wouldn't see this type of thing happening in the UK, or would you?
