Can't be, there's no such thing as OHS in the UAE. (Also, Too much greenery, blokes aren't quite Bangladeshi enough, plus the steel is set in strongly enough to hold the guys weight. )

Over- egging the pudding a wee bit there TG. There have been big improvements in worker welfare in the UAE since '08. Still not great, but better than anywhere else in the region.

That pic is probably Yemen or Egypt. (Yea - thats right - the same guys who built the pyramids :roll: )

When I do clinical hours to recert as a Paramedic I respond to faaaaar too many building site and labour camp injuries to have a huge amount of faith in the improvements over the years. Yeah, they do wear their helmets more often now, but more for reasons of window dressing than any real attempt to address H&S regs. It's eye opening seeing behind the veil. The injuries that shouldn't be occurring are rampant.

One of the better known pics to come from inside the labour camps. Not all are as bad as this, but it's by no means the worst I've seen either.

He swallowed a snake to catch the bird, he wallowed the bird to catch the fly, I don’t know why he swallows a fly.

If you look closely, you can see a man on a mustang chasing after two men on a charger down that main street. :D
