Itumeleng Dlamini, Executive Director of Master Builders South Africa, says that the collapse of a building at the Meyersdal Eco Estate on Monday highlights the lack of skills in building industry

Approximately 75% of the sector’s workforce is classified as unskilled or semi-skilled.

She said the collapse speaks to the supervisory role that you find on construction sites. “If you don’t have the necessary skills supervising the work force… then you have an accident just waiting to happen.”
