At Appaswamy, the safety of our workers and personnel is paramount! We are proud to announce that Trellis South, Vadapalani has been completed with a 100% safety benchmark. With over 30 lakh (3 million) man-hours spent, we have had zero fatalities or injuries to our personnel working on this project. And how have we achieved this stupendous feat, you ask?
Our workers come from all over the country. Before engaging them on one of our sites, we conduct an intense training program where we orient them on the necessary safety safeguard measures and procedures. It is also important to note that all on-ground personnel must get a complete medical examination done before they are fit for work. For those that are required to work at heights, further evaluation is done to make sure they are fit to work at an elevation.
Each team is assigned a specific task, and the required basic training is given to individual teams. We ensure that all our workers use helmets and safety shoes on site, there are nets in place in the event of a fall, harnesses are at hand for those that must work at heights, and much more. It is heartening to note that these safety measures were welcomed by our staff across various levels and they have been quick in adopting any new measures and technologies we introduce.
For tasks that require a special skill set, we conduct niche training to acquaint the workers with the required procedures. They are also given additional equipment to ensure their safety. Every site has weekly meetings – one for all workers, and one for individual teams to discuss any challenges they face in implementing the safety procedures.
On a periodic basis, checks are done on all construction equipment to ensure they are working at optimum efficiency. These checks often go through multiple levels of inspection – Team Leader, Engineer, Project Manager, Safety Head and the Head of Engineering. In case any part of the site is non-compliant with our stringent safety measures, a report is generated by the Project Manager and it is resolved within 48 hours.
With the overwhelming success we have seen with Trellis South, our revised safety safeguards are being emulated and implemented in all our upcoming properties. Further, safety implementation on our project, Bloomingdale Phase-II has also been a stupendous achievement.
Our aim is to create properties that are safely made for you.
