TIRUCHI: The Central Safety Committee of Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Tiruchi, has come out with its first short film on safety.

The CD of the hour-long film, released during the National Safety Day function on Thursday by Executive Director A.V. Krishnan, features the safe practices adopted in the plant and interviews on safety by employees.

Mr. Krishnan, who earlier hoisted the Safety flag, handed over the first copy of the CD titled Divinity in Safety to Additional General Manager – Human Resource M. Palanivelu.

He also presented the first copies of the Special Bulletin on safety and CD of the bulletin to S. Gopinath, General Manager, Operations – Boiler Shops and Chairman, Central Safety Committee, and K. Gopalraj, Workman representative of Central Safety Committee respectively, in the presence of A. Venkidasalapathy, Additional General Manager, Safety Management.

Safety, quality and productivity go together. It means reduction in cycle time, faster delivery, and customer satisfaction. With the expanding operations of the Plant reflecting in increase in materials handling, the requisite resources for safe practices would be put in place to ensure zero accident rate; investment for safety of employees would be made by all means, Mr. Krishnan said after administering the safety pledge in English.

“Take another pledge internally to motivate all to follow, and to follow (safe practices),” he urged the gathering of employees, exhorting them to be role models. The root cause for accidents could be eradicated if the sequence of activities in all areas of operation is adhered to strictly. Short-cuts lead to safety hazards. Mr. Krishnan felt that safety needs to be accorded a higher thrust in the context of the expanding production capacity of the Plant: towards a target of six lakh tonnes this fiscal and seven lakh tonnes next year.

Mr. Gopinath administered the pledge in Tamil. Employees took the oath rededicating themselves to the noble cause of preventing accidents, injuries and damages to property through safety promotional activities.

Even as the nation observed the 39 {+t} {+h} Safety Day, for the BHEL it was 42 {+n} {+d}; the BHEL took safety seriously even before the nation, M. Thiruvalluvar, Senior Deputy General Manager, Safety Management, BHEL, said. .

At the Seamless Steel Tube Plant (SSTP), P.Nainar, General Manager, administered the safety pledge to the employees.
