(en) Poland, Workers initiative, ozzip: World Day for Safety and Health at Work - operators continue to protest [machine translation]

Date Wed, 5 May 2021 09:05:12 +0300

On Wednesday, April 28, punctually at 11:00 a.m., several dozen operators from Warsaw, Lódz, Kraków, Lublin, Poznan and the Tri-City put on hooks, turned on sirens and refused to work for an hour. The action was organized on the occasion of the World Day of Safety and Health at Work. ---- Wednesday's protest was another stage in the fight for higher remuneration for operators. On the occasion of the holiday falling on April 28, the organizers recalled how hard and responsible the work of operators is and the importance of compliance with health and safety rules on construction sites. As the Facebook profile of Protest of Tower Crane Operators - Warsaw indicates:

Construction, next to mining and agriculture, belongs to the section of the economy with one of the highest statistical accident rates
In 2019, as many as 4,743 people in the construction industry were injured at work, including 44 killed and a further 41 seriously injured
Working as a crane operator is particularly dangerous work
The tower crane operator is responsible for the safety and life of both himself and tens of people working on a given investment
Work-related stress is considered to be one of the most important occupational risk factors, which leaves permanent traces in our bodies
Long-term work of the operator in a forced position causes many diseases of the joints and the spine
In 2020, the earnings of tower crane operators dropped by as much as 1/4, and the construction industry enjoyed record profits
Many of us are employed under civil law and self-employment contracts, so we are not entitled to paid vacation or paid sick leave
We work under time pressure, often "on the phone", often on broken equipment, which affects the safety of everyone on the site
We fight for remuneration adequate to the responsibility, contracts guaranteeing rest and vacation as well as work in accordance with health and safety regulations.
