So many construction workers have died in Israel already. As I mentioned before, more inspection and prevention are needed. But maybe there is one more thing that we can do.
How about a law requiring every building spot in Israel to have a plaque at the lobby or entrance that states if builders died in its construction.
It should be made of copper or another metal that (is coated and) looks like copper. It should be on the wall clearly visible, not behind an obstacle, not too high or low, easy to read for the average person.
It should state “During construction of this building, the following workers died or were mortally injured.” Then it should read their birthdays and birthplaces, and their names and dates of passing.
Optional should be a similar plaque honoring those who stayed healthy but worked on that construction for any considerable time.
We should acknowledge those who build our dwellings, shops, and workplaces, highways and stadiums, banks and shuls, tracks and stations, including Jews, Arab Muslims, Chinese, Romanians, and other nationalities.
This would also give credit where credit is due to blue-collar workers.
Gratefulness is the backbone of Judaism and possibly of any moral system.
Besides, the idea of having to put up such a commemorative plaque might be an extra stimulus for contractors to be more stringent about safety.
