Mfar gets British Safety Council’s accolade
Mfar Constructions Pvt Ltd has bagged the prestigious international award instituted by British Safety Council, the world’s leading health and safety organization. Mfar Constructions Pvt Ltd becomes the first construction company of Karnataka to receive such a prestigious accolade.
The British Safety Council’s International Safety Award is conferred following rigorous and independent assessment of an organization’s health and safety policies and procedures by an adjudication panel.
Speaking on the occasion, BK Dhar, CEO, Mfar Constructions Pvt Ltd, said, "We are delighted at receiving this award from the prestigious British Safety Council. This award places us amongst internationally recognized organizations and demonstrates our continued hard work and contribution to sustain our health and safety culture for our workers and employees."
To ensure the safety of its employees, the company periodically reviews the safety management systems and addresses potential major hazards to ensure risks are reduced and, wherever possible, eliminated. Having observed that a high percentage of accidents were triggered by the unsafe behavior of workers, the company has developed a training system.
The training spans work culture, material handling and personal protective equipment, such that workers feel safe and are equipped with the relevant knowledge on how to stay safe and healthy at work.
Julie Nerney, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said, "For more than 50 years, the British Safety Council has led the way in promoting health, safety and environmental best practice in society. In the 21st century, many organizations worldwide are understanding making health, safety and environmental management their top priority. Through achieving an International Safety Award, Mfar Constructions Pvt Ltd is helping to make our vision of a healthy and safe working environment a reality."
