Azzopardi made comments following yet another collapse of a building next to a construction site where works are ongoing. The dean said that every person needs a roof over one’s head, and the basic right to live in a safe environment. He argued that holding responsible those who had to guarantee safety was not enough to prevent such incidents from happening.

Azzopardi made a number of recommendations which he believes could improve the situation. He urged for better enforcement. He also maintained that regulation requires that each person is sufficiently trained prior to working on a construction site.
