Emaar MGF celebrates National Safety Week with site workers
Gurgaon, March 11, 2015: Emaar MGF, the leading real estate developer in India, recently commemorated the 44th National Safety Day and Week at its project sites with a host of activities. The Company organised various events with active participation by site contractors for spreading awareness about the importance of safety amongst its site workers promoting compliance with Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) norms.
The campaign to celebrate 4th March as National Safety Day and the week of 4th-10th March as National Safety Week across India every year was firstly founded by National Safety Council of India, a self-governing and non-profit body.
The Company conducted various safety awareness activities and competitions at its project sites like Palm Terraces Select, Marbella, Capital Towers, Palm Hills, Palm Drive and Emerald Hills in Gurgaon and Mohali Hills in Mohali. The construction workers demonstrated great enthusiasm and participated actively in programs like safety flag hoisting, safety pledge, safety walk, mock safety drills and demonstration, safety song and safety speeches. Emaar MGF also facilitated prize distribution for the best HSE performers, as well as the most safety-conscious laborers and workers at site.
Commenting on this occasion, Mr. Baljot Gill, Vice President–Projects, Emaar MGF Land Limited said: “At Emaar MGF, we have always been dedicated towards providing a safe and healthy work environment for our work-force, along with premium quality standards for our customers. To create awareness about safe work practices, and to ensure adoption of correct safety norms, our HSE Team ensures that various safety programs, health checkups, training sessions, mock drills and demonstrations are regularly conducted at project sites, with active support from our staff and the contractors. These endeavors have enabled us to receive the Safety Award from National Safety Council of India. On the occasion of National Safety Week, we reiterate the importance and significance of health, safety and environment and our continual efforts in meeting and exceeding their higher Standards.”
Emaar MGF, in addition to offering global quality projects for its patrons, organises several social initiatives regularly. The company undertook the annual blanket distribution drive recently across its project sites in India. It held health camps for its site workers on World AIDS Day, and awareness sessions on World Quality Day.
