CONSTRUCTION DELAYS DUE TO THE HEAT
To beat the heat, many contractors are ramping up measures, such as allowing their workers to have more rest and ensuring they also have plenty of water.
For these workers, long hours in the sun are part and parcel of the job.
However, the higher temperatures are taking a toll on their health.
Migrant worker Selvarasu Senthil, who fell sick last week, said: “I went to see a doctor. The doctor said I’ve been exposed too much to the sun, so I have a headache, fever, and feel faint.”
