Safety is the top most priority for everyone — be it outdoors or in your workspace.
Recently, pictures of employees of electricity department in Banda, Uttar Pradesh, who were seen wearing helmets to shield their heads circulated on social media. The reason? They were fearful that their the office in the government building might collapse on their heads.
In the pictures, it can be seen that the office they worked in was not in a great condition. The roof in the corner is seen falling, bearing holes and the entire ceiling seems to be resting on a narrow iron pillar.
These pictures of these employees, posted by ANI, soon went viral.
One of the employees told ANI that the condition of the building has been the same since he joined two years back. He added that authorities have been informed about their plight but no action has been taken so far.

However, the employees of electricity department in Banda are not the first ones facing this situation. In 2017, staff of Bihar government office in East Champaran was seen donning helmets before heading inside their office building, which is in a dilapidated condition.
Even the people visiting this bloc office in Areraj opt to protect their heads before entering into the bloc of the government office.
Though the office has been declared dangerous in 2016 by the Bihar government's building construction department, people continue to work in the bloc wearing helmets.
