Safety Measures

March 4th is observed as National Safety Day for health & safety at workplaces, and we observe the same. This is an occasion to remember and honour those who overcome the challenges of health & safety at workplaces.In terms of health and safety aspects, the infrastructure and construction sector has always been vulnerable and we are working to improve the situation by spreading awareness pertaining to safety measures and exercises. The first safety drive at Vishwa was organized in 2011 based on the theme 'Be Safe, Work Safe, Life is a Gift' which helped raise awareness levels of all employees. Safety Drive 2012 was based on the theme 'Let's Value Life'. This Vishwa Safety Drive (VSD) campaign was aimed to create awareness regarding the dimensions and consequences of work related incidents, injuries and diseases and to motivate the employees to abide by safety guidelines. It aimed to make workplaces safer by achieving a positive change in safety culture and practices. The campaign encouraged workers to take ownership and leadership by promoting the concept of 'I am a Safety Leader'.

The campaign included trainings workshops, safety competitions, practical demonstrations through PPE, posters, intranet / Internet and audio-visual medium. Vishwa recently bagged the prestigious OHSAS 18001 'Occupational Health Safety Assessment Series' certification in recognition of its focus on creating safer work places. We are looking forward to acquire the coveted ISO -14001 EMS 'Environment Management System' certification.
