In an attempt to support and encourage the Indian steel building and construction industry, Tata BlueScope Steel kick-started its unique structural riggers and roofers’ professional certification program on 21st July 2022 at one of its prestigious customer sites IDEX India in Sanand, Gujarat. This initiative will address the shortage of professionally trained structural riggers and roofers that the industry is currently facing.

Commenting on the concept, Anoop Kumar Trivedi, Managing Director, Tata BlueScope Steel, said, “Construction workers need a platform to ensure that they get the right training and know-how to become better professionals. The Kawach Pro-Certification is a step towards empowering them to earn professional credentials, thus elevating the entire construction industry with world-class safety practices while demonstrating our commitment to quality.”

Training modules are curated by top industry professionals and trainers from CIDC (Construction Industry Development Council). It includes both on-site and theoretical framework in a 2-day workshop.

Module includes:
  • Training on Safe Construction Practices
  • Training on Working at Heights and Critical Handling
  • Mobile equipment operating techniques and risk management
  • Certification post assessment
There is a huge demand for people who can install steel structures and roof systems with safe construction practices and quality finish. A professionally built structure lasts longer, is safer and studier, enabling superior aesthetics.

Pulin Trivedi, General Manager - Building Solutions, said, “About 40 construction workers were qualified for receiving a national level certification from CIDC. Their main takeaway from this workshop is increased knowledge, confidence, and pride in their work. This will help them work with improved safety practices and new-age approaches.”

“Safety is our number one priority. Consistency in installation further strengthens customer and supplier confidence. Tata BlueScope Steel follows best-in-class construction practices, giving us a significant competitive advantage. Kawach Pro-Certification will open up a whole new world of opportunities,” said Ajay Rattan, Associate VP - Corporate Services, Tata BlueScope Steel.
