Welspun One Logistics Parks (WOLP) has completed over 3 million ‘Safe man-hours’ at its Bhiwandi, Farukhnagar, and Lucknow park locations collectively. Commemorating the achievement, WOLP organized a ‘Safety Week Celebrations’ for the workforce at their construction project sites.
Welspun One has built a safety-first culture by implementing safe work systems and raising awareness through HSE (Health, Safety & Environment) education for its workforce across its sites. Furthermore, the WOLP parks are 100% compliant with stringent safety norms and follow a well-devised plan of action to implement safety control measures, helping them achieve 3M+ safe man-hours.
“Safety is a part of the culture and a core responsibility at WOLP. By thoroughly implementing systems that allow for a safe and healthy work environment, we have endeavored to make our project sites incident-free from a safety standpoint. We are immensely pleased to have completed 3M+ safe-man hours, which will further encourage us to rigidly stick to these safety norms and measures in our operations.”Anshul Singhal, Managing Director, Welspun One Logistics Parks
Some of the safety practices include – the adoption of slope-cutting method, provision of hard-railing on the edge of excavation pits, competent operators and fit-for-work earth moving equipment, availability of test equipment for underground services, and gas monitoring to issue permits for excavation and confined spaces respectively. Besides this, vertigo tests are conducted for those working at a height, while safety nets, lifelines, and safety harnesses are used for fall protection.
Further, periodic inspections of scaffolding platforms and lifting gears and appliances are also carried out.
In addition to these, electrical work safety is ensured by using LOTO, and PAT tests for hand tools and by using IP-rated external DBs. Similarly, pedestrian safety is ensured at sites by keeping designated walkways and flagmen at the crossing zones for segregating man and vehicular traffic.
WOLP’s site teams put continuous efforts into designing and conducting training for their manpower including confined space works, steel bending, and cutting, safety harness and hand tools, manual and mechanical lifting, and much more.
The team also regularly conducts workshops, toolbox talks, and safety drills to implement safe work practices across all its construction sites. Furthermore, a nurse and ambulance are made available at each site alongside tie-ups with a nearby hospital.
