Tata Projects has chosen a bee as its safety mascot. Bees are considered indispensable to the existence of humankind as they pollinate approximately 35% of the crop species consumed by us. The mascot goes by the name HACHI. Hachi, is a Japanese word, and it means ‘Bee’. It epitomizes the six-sigma of safety, respect, and environment. And bees personify perseverance and symbolize community and teamwork. 

Mr. Himanshu Chaturvedi, Chief Strategy & Growth Officer, Tata Projects Ltd, said, “In today’s world, businesses must make focused efforts to ensure the occupational safety of their workforce. This is because the well-being of workers is crucial for the success of any business. At Tata Projects, we understand the importance of workplace safety and make sure that it is our top priority. We believe that every worker has the right to return home safely at the end of the day.

To achieve this, we have put in place various measures to ensure the safety of our workers at our sites. One of the programs we have in place to promote a culture of safety at Tata Projects is the Zero Tolerance Assurance program. This program is designed to reduce the risks for workers on the job and to prevent accidents and injuries. It is a comprehensive safety program that covers all aspects of workplace safety. We provide regular training to our workers on the importance of workplace safety, the hazards they might encounter on the job, and how to protect themselves from these hazards. We also invest in the latest safety gear to protect our workers. Safe construction at project sites is critical not just for the workers, but also for the public. Many construction sites are located in populated areas or are accessible to non-project staff. Stringent protocols ensures that project execution is safe to all persons.

At Tata Projects, we are committed to ensuring that our workers are safe and healthy. We believe that safety should be the way of life.”

“This campaign will enables to promulgate our belief that the safety of stakeholders takes precedence over everything else. With this campaign, we not only endeavor to eliminate accidents at project sites, but also educate and enlighten the masses about industry-wide safety practices.”
