#70,OSH Expo; Hyderabad.


Apologies for long absence. I was tied up with personal situations over last couple of months as well as took good 4 weeks off doing just nothing other than reading, cooking as well as catch up quite lot of family time. ( Good 32 years it took to work such a plan). I hope to be active from July 2nd week or so as few more personal commitments down the line are done and dusted. 


I am off to Hyderabad this week for a day (28th,29th June, Thu, Friday is the event at Hitex) to participate in the OSH Expo on Safety and Security. I had been invited to chair / Moderate  a session on “Construction Safety”. This is a topic very close to my heart as close to 35 Million workers of whom 30% are unskilled put themselves at Huge Risk.

I have already written a blog post on OSH Expo at Madras last June which I attended. I was also to attend a session at Bombay, last November or so but missed due to personal situation. (Good thing as you age is you can say NO, if personal situations dominate without even blink of an eye)

I am producing the agenda Below. I look forward to EHS and operational folks taking advantage of the program. There shall be a huge exhibition/Demo on Safety and Security product display.  EHS has moved some way in India and it will be good EHS and operational folks do their bit to move their capability needle from the knowledge and network front.

See you there.
