I am specialized in quality assurance in which safety is of one of its three major elements. I can understand the importance of safety in any sphere of life. It offen appears in media that weak shuttering resulted in various incidents. This unauthorised practice must be curbed at any cost to avoid such occurrences in future. This is only possible if qualified civil engineer is deputed at site and made responsible to ensure that specified methods for lintel construction have been adopted.
