Work halted at fire-hitCebu Metro after construction worker falls to his death


Now it will take even longer to get that store open, I find it scary when I see locals working on many different projects as there appears to be few safety standards. RIP Beltran Arcocero.

My BIL is a master welder. We chat sometimes about safety or lack of. Often I'll buy him the protective equipment that he should be using as it is rarely supplied but most times I tell him to be careful and he says it's either do it or they'll find someone else who will.
