On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about safety standards at construction projects. A worker died this week, another was missing, and several others were injured when a platform collapsed at the bridge which is being built to link Hong Kong with Zhuhai and Macau. It's been reported that eight people have died and about 170 have been injured since work on the project started in 2011. So how could safety be better addressed at construction sites, and who should be responsible? How can future accidents be prevented?
