health and safety training in India

Siemens and TÜV Rheinland for Occupational Safety in India.

SITRUST stands for Siemens & TÜV Rheinland Unique Safety Training. Here’s more about the Siemens TÜV Rheinland Global Skill Centre for Occupational Safety in Mumbai in partnership with TÜV Rheinland.

Zero incidents – it is achievable, according to one of the principles of the “Zero Harm Culture@Siemens” program. The occupational safety program launched in fiscal year 2012 is having an increasingly positive impact. Significant progress in enhancing the collaboration with contractors and improving the safety culture was made in the Middle East and in India.

sitrust-iindia-parkThe Global Skill Centre for Occupational Safety at Mumbai (see model of the center left) is an admirable example of this approach. SITRUSTTM stands for Siemens & TÜV Rheinland Unique Safety Training. This training program is the global answer for safety training in India in order to change the perception towards risk and safety. Since there were mostly theoretical classroom trainings available without practical approach in the past, SITRUST includes an extensive practical component with a simulated construction site environment and uses “learn the theory, master the practice” skills. The training incorporates simulations and practical case studies of complex risks combined with multiple hazards such as working at heights and close to high voltage power lines as well as welding/gas cutting activities, etc.

Through structured and practical site situations in the form of storyboards, SITRUST™ will provide hands-on training modules to:

  • Identify hazards,
  • Identify what is good/bad,
  • Identify what is acceptable/not acceptable,
  • Adopt safe practices, and
  • Identify and mitigate risks by having proper control measures in place.

[gdl_gallery title=”sitrust-india” width=”125″ height=”83″ ]

TÜV Rheinland and Siemens co-developed this practical simulation of site conditions and completed the program with a certification process. About 100 safety cards have been developed for trainers and trainees and integrated into 10 – 15 different story boards. About 5 to 10 participants per group will solve various subtasks. The complete program, after a theoretical briefing, includes 2 days in the training park. To maintain independence and ensure the assessment is neutral, all trainings and certifications are conducted exclusively by TÜV Rheinland.

Global Skill Center and the SITRUST™ Training Program:

  • have a multitude of object lessons within a small area
  • have a highly practical approach: “learning by doing”
  • simulate the object lessons under real work conditions
  • simulate the most common mistakes in work safety
  • train everyone to realize risk interactions
  • train everyone to do the right thing in the right way
  • prepare everyone for working in real projects
