Building a Safety Culture
The corporate EHS Policy is translated into action with
the help of a corporate EHS framework, which spells out
procedures, guidelines and manuals. The culture of safety
is spread across all levels where every employee plays an
important and responsible role. Dedicated EHS teams at
each business and project site, work closely with proactive
and highly competent project site teams, to enforce the
Company’s practices. The teams also aid business-specific
EHS interventions commensurate with the relevant risks.
Safety training before the commencent & regular training
sessions are essential elements of our safety interventions. The safety performance of the Company is reviewed
every month at management review meetings and on
a quarterly basis at the Board level, to ensure continual
We are conscious of the health and safety of all the
contract workmen working at our sites. Sub-contractors
are evaluated for their safety capabilities and strengths
before assigning contracts. They are expected to
comply with our policies and practices. L&T ensures
their commitment through regular training and capacity
building programmes, site visits and audits

A basket case with a happy ending
At L&T Power sites, man baskets are used to conduct work at heights. This lifting equipment, consisting of a basket with a facility for anchoring harnesses, enables workmen to be hoisted safely to heights beyond the reach of conventional ladders.
Activities like structural inspections and bolting at heights can be carried out without compromising personnel safety.
