Finally, the company that violated the labour safety norms in the country will be punished! Violation of the legislation resulted in the death of a 16-year-old teenager, - said President of Georgia, Salome Zourabichvili.
"The adoption and protection of labour safety standards is an integral part of our development as a European state. 21 people have died in the workplace this year and most of the accidents occurred in the construction sector. These statistics are unacceptable!"- Zourabichvili said.
The statement comes after the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia arrested the director of a construction company in relation to the death of a minor at a construction site on Dolabauri Street, Tbilisi.
