Health and safety standards in the construction sector in Malta leave much to be desired but the sheer irresponsibility portrayed in this picture towards what appears to be minors is rather alarming. 

This picture taken on Sunday at Marsaxlokk shows large planks of wood being elevated or deposited onto a truck as a man and two youngsters on board look on.

The possibility of the bulky material coming undone appears to be ignored in what is becoming a regular sight in Malta.
