Tata Projects redraws project execution strategies due to COVID-19 pandemic
The construction sector is the second-largest employer in India after agriculture and is labour intensive.
"We are confident about overcoming this new challenge through emphasis on technological solutions and other proactive precautionary measures. We have redrawn our project execution strategies to ensure minimal workforce interaction at various project sites," Tata Projects Chief Strategy Officer Himanshu Chaturvedi said.Meetings will be conducted digitally and instructions thereafter communicated to the on-site workforce through phones or other devices, Chaturvedi said adding that workers will be provided sanitisers, face masks and other protective gear.
"Most importantly workers shall be counselled about the need for maintaining social distancing while providing them tips or instructions to ensure their well-being in these times," he said.Terming officials as the most important asset, the official said, "After the current restrictions are eased in the construction sector, we will be closely monitoring the situation while taking all the above mentioned initiatives to safeguard their health and well-being."
