The Road Ahead Towards Construction 5.0
The argument: worker's productivity is lower than expected, a lame argument for those who seek to pay less well below legality
In the construction sector is common to hear small talks, among construction workers, but also technical staff, about the number of work hours outside the regular work hours. The extra hour was extended to a point of now a day of work requires more than 25% of the time at the construction site to perform the same work tasks while building. The argument: worker's productivity is lower than expected, a lame argument for those who seek to pay less well about legality.
To make things worst, the lack of transparency on adjudicating works to subcontractors, many times found work activities price below the marginal cost of said activity, in an attempt to catch a bid on the contract and later introduce additional works to compensate the negative profit.
Is true, the road to technology upgrading at enterprises requires a more deep comprehension of the business on behalf of the authorities, but up to a certain point. Over the years I've been arguing the need for fiscal authorities to promote an environment of information about said limits and what is acceptable although not desirable. This needs to happen publicly while acknowledging the limitations observed in society at the citizen level. So enterprises know better the road ahead a plan in advance the expected changes required to operate their businesses safely.
