1. What is meant by Safety

PowerPoint Presentation:

Safety It is nothing but freedom from; ACCIDENT Stickman Preventing trip

PowerPoint Presentation:

Accident Unplanned, unexpected event which result in Injury / Ill Health to People Damage / Loss to property, Plants, Materials Damage / loss to Environment Loss of Business opportunity

Hazard :

Hazard HAZARD & RISK Hazard means anything that can cause harm (e.g. electricity, working at height, etc.) RISK Risk is the chance, high or low, that somebody will be harmed by the hazard.

2. Challenges in Construction

Some facts of construction:

Some facts of construction Construction sector is very essential - integral part of Nation’s infrastructure development - tremendous boost to country’s economy. Registered enormous growth worldwide in recent years. Still labour intensive compared to other sectors. In India 33 million people engaged in construction which is next to agriculture.

Some facts of construction…..contd:

Workmen are being exposed to wide variety of OSH hazards. The rate of fatal accident is 4 to 5 timers that of manufacturing sector. Serious potential of fire due to storage & use of flammable mat. Potential for disasters due to collapse of the structures & subsidence of the soil on which the construction activity is being carried out. Some facts of construction….. contd

Statistics of Construction:

Annual turnover : Rs . 3921 billion Contribution of GDP : 6.2 % Employment : 33 million workers Engineers : 4.7 % Technicians & Foreman : 2.5 % Skilled Workers : 73.1 % Annual growth : 8 % (Targeted) Statistic of Construction (Source : CIDC Country Report 2009 -2010) Statistics of Construction
