- A large unbarricaded excavation hole
- Rebar not capped or stored correctly.

It's an accident waiting to happen. In Australia, this site would be shutdown and the builder would be in court.

The contractor is disgraceful for allowing such disarray at the site. This wouldnt be allowed in a first world country.

I also think that they are in a safe part of the construction site and just taking a break there. Where else should they stay for a short break? There are a lot of skyscrapers in bangkok, so i think they are know what they are doing and where it's safe to eat or take a nap.

Are there any statistics of deadly accidents in construction sites in Bangkok? How does that compare to other places? I think it's best to judge that kind of stuff by using actual numbers. Anything else is just a subjective interpretation.

Marioma: Where did you get these pictures? Are they actually taken from RCR construction site or from somewhere else? Please explain yourself.

To all: Before coming to a conclusion that those pictures posted by Marioma are actually taken from RCR's construction site, please take note that all pictures are "zoomed in" - no surroundings that can clearly identify that they are actually taken from the RCR site can be seen. As far as I'm concerned, these pictures can be taken from anywhere.

Looking at how neat the RCR construction site is now, I do not believe that those pictures are taken from where Marioma say they are.

How about posting some pictures that are ZOOMED OUT to show the whole area? If you can't do that, then I simply dismiss these pictures as NOT taken from RCR's construction site.

Yes, those pictures are definitely NOT taken from Mahanakhon's construction site. Seems like Marioma is just trying to discredit the whole project.

However, whenever or whatever abaout the resting photos... Building work is so exhausting they have the right to take a break, a nap, a snack...

Don't be so mean.

Look at the clothing, the people sitting and eating are wearing different colour then the people in the zoomed out construction picture.

They made a video addressing the safety issue. Proves that Marioma's pics were not taken from the site.
