Workforce is what makes a difference to a company. And there can be no better day to celebrate the spirit of workmanship than the Labour Day itself. At Rajhans (Desai-Jain) Group, we understand the importance of our workforce. Thus we conducted a session on “General Awareness Training on Health & Safety”. The session enabled the staff and the workers at our various construction sites to gain knowledge on health and safety. Construction being a rapidly growing industry in the nation, demands a healthy and a competent workforce on a large scale. This session added impetus to the construction workers as it highlighted the benefits of health and safety.
A safe work environment in construction is essential and required by the Occupational and Health Safety Administration, (OSHA). Making workers aware of the hazards, safety procedures and accident prevention can help to reduce injuries amongst the workers. Training supports employees by providing guidelines that help them to prevent themselves from various hazardous accidents at the site.
Safety training in construction covers a wide range of topics. Some of these include the correct storage of various materials, stacking items, using machinery to move materials. Apart from these topics, the session also highlighted the importance of fall prevention systems and the precautions required in different situations. One of them being, avoiding near miss situations.
Since construction sites demand working in tall high rises, roofs and scaffolding, workers are prone to falls from the very buildings. Thus the session also mentioned the usage of safety helmets and safety shoes on the site. It also enabled the workers to learn about the various safe methods of moving materials, machines and manpower from one building to another.
The session concluded with distribution of sweets to the workers. Needless to say a healthy and a strong workforce ensures a healthy growth for the organization.
To throw a light on the rising global disturbances, United Nations Environment Programme paved a path for World Environment Day in 1973. Over the years the initiative has thrown light on various environmental issues at different locations across the world.
What resulted is the fact that global issues can be resolved only when change begins at the grass root level. The revolution can happen only when every individual come ahead to play his best part.
And as a concerned group of the society, Rajhans (Desai-Jain) Group launched an awareness campaign from 1st to 20th June, 2013 in Surat City, India to contribute in eradicating this world problem. As we believe to the core that global food loss is one of the most imperative problems for the international community, and somewhere down the line one has to curb this ever-increasing issue.
The theme gave us an opportunity and a platform to raise awareness that will help fight against the global food losses and waste. We think that there is a noble message hidden in the 3 words –‘Think. Eat. Save’. Through this campaign, we endeavour to add wings to people’s lives. We aim call for action, that it’s time to think before one wastes food because what one saves can feed hunger of many people.
As the group marches towards new heights, it also plays a prominent role in creating a cleaner and a greener environment. And what can be the better way than starting awareness on ‘Think. Eat. Save.’, theme for World Environment Day-2013. After all, a bit from each one makes a difference to everyone.
Rajhans (Desai – Jain) Group called for one more action to protect the environment and our Mother –
Earth on June 5, 2013 – The World Environment Day by Planting trees.
To keep this World Clean & Green, we started from our home to take this message ahead by planting trees at our corporate office, all the Project Sites and Branches. The task of environment protection is a universal responsibility of all of us. Everyone counts in this initiative. This way, we will be making an important gesture to the world in demonstrating our global concern and at the same time making our own little but significant, contribution to the cause.
