The construction industry is all about safety, says Shruti Bhattacharya, the executive director of the Construction Safety Supply Association of India.
The industry has been grappling with how to supply more people to its work sites with the increased number of people coming into construction.
The supply chain is fragmented and fragmented, she said.
The new government has announced a slew of safety standards, including the construction industry’s supply chain safety goals and a requirement to ensure that safety gear is properly made.
The government is also planning to build safety schools and supply more safety materials.
However, Bhatticharya said, the industry is yet to see a concrete commitment to deliver these materials.
