  • Safety of construction workers: Rules and regulations

    What rules and regulations should developers follow to ensure the safety of construction workers employed with them? Has RERA set some rules?

    Re : Safety of construction workers: Rules and regulations

    Talking about RERA, it has not defined any specific rule or regulation concerning construction safety or safety of construction workers in general. However, the rules set by them direct developers to ensure that safety standards are met during construction and that they get to start construction after obtaining all statutory approvals. Although that doesn't point out construction workers, it tends to benefit them in some way by ensuring a secure work environment.

      Malvish so there is no rule specifically made to benefit construction workers in particular?

        mmalhot No, there is no specific rule for construction workers. In India, safety in construction activity is regulated by the National Building Code (NBC), which provides a set of guidelines that comprises of administrative regulations, general building requirements, development control rules, fire safety systems, structural design and construction and stipulations regarding materials, building and plumbing services. Having said that, safety standards, in general, are given importance.

          Malvish these are good but still RERA should have been more particular about the safety of workers.

            mmalhot Yes, that would have been good. However, the NBC directs developers to ensure a safe work environment for workers and other employees in general and it is kind of mandatory for developers with an employee strength more than 50 workers, to issue a policy statement with respect to their safety and health.
