Contractors of Soroti main market Techno three (u) Ltd have been tasked to observe safety precautions of their employees and the members of the public who visit the site.
This observation was made by the contractor manager ministry of local government Engineer Philip Pichan who noted that the contractors must ensure safety of their workers while at the site to avoid accidents and damages.
Some of the workers at Soroti main market who preferred anonymity due to fear of losing their jobs complained of lack of protective gears like hand gloves thus making them handle metals bear handed.
But the director of Techno three (u) ltd Mr. Amandeep Singh noted that they have provided their employees with protective gears but some of them have opted to take to their homes other than using them while at site.
Soroti main market is being constructed at a contract cost of 23 billion under the Markets and Agricultural Trade Improvement Program Project-MATIP -2 funded by the government of Uganda and African Development Bank and its expected to be completed by 14th february2020.
