position paper on public safety in construction

13.9.2022. The Malta Chamber of Geologists and the Malta Developers Association have issued a joint Position Paper on Public Safety in Construction. The Position Paper highlights two important issues:

  1. The need for state warrants for geologists in Malta and the setting up a Board that confers such warrants.

  2. The setting up of a Malta Geological Service. Malta remains the only European country without such a service, and this places local industry at a disadvantage.
