Tata BlueScope Steel bags CIDC Vishwakarma Award for Safety, Health and Environment, second time in a row
Reiterating its commitment to world-class safety practices and on-site project execution, Tata BlueScope Steel’s Building Products division – LYSAGHT, has received the 10th CIDC Vishwakarma Award 2018 for Safety, Health and Environment, for the second time in a row. The award was conferred for a Tata Steel Processing and Distribution Ltd project, one of India’s largest steel service centres, where LYSAGHT supplied colour-coated metal sheets for their roofing and walling requirements, apart from design detailing, engineering and construction support. Zero harm to people and environment is at the core of all Safety Management Systems at Tata BlueScope Steel.
“This success was achievable due to team work and collaboration. A team of well qualified and experienced engineers, safety officers, and safety stewards were deployed at the project site to ensure safety and quality standards were maintained all throughout. Regular safety audits, consistent guidance, onsite training programmes, and best industry practices led to a 100% safe environment. The job was executed in a fully-operational plant, which demanded additional safety precautions, to prevent any harm to person or equipment due to falling debris during dismantling of existing roof sheets. A special arrangement with close supervision was made to mitigate these risks. With a total sheeting area of 60,000 m2 at a height of 30 mts, Tata BlueScope Steel delivered 1.4 lakh LTI and MTI free man-days with no severity,” said Ajay Rattan, GM – sales, construction & engineering (LYSAGHT Business), on receiving the award.
