Why is cross-deployment allowed only for construction or process employers?

The nature of work in the construction or process sector is such that manpower requirements fluctuate throughout the project. There are periods where contractors need to ramp up their operations, but there are also times when fewer workers are needed.

Allowing cross-deployment of foreign workers in the industry will allow contractors to optimise their foreign manpower, especially during periods of lull or low work activity.
