India’s Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has been accredited to deliver courses that will lead NEBOSH International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety. The courses will be available to L&T’s employees at its Leadership Development Academy in Lonavala, near Mumabi. The courses and certification will help L&T to create health and safety “torchbearers” who will promote a positive and safe work culture. L&T has also applied for accreditation to deliver courses leading to NEBOSH qualifications in Health & Safety at Work, Certificate in Construction Health and Safety, as well as the Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety.
NEBOSH Chief Executive Teresa Budworth and International Manager Stuart Naylor presented the accreditation certificate to Mr S. N. Subrahmanyan, Senior Executive Vice President (Infrastructure & Construction) and Member of the Board at L&T.
“We hope to extensively use this programme to train a maximum number of people – staff, sub-contractors, workmen and integrate safety in every work we do, be it small or big, simple or complex, to make a significant reduction in accident rates,” said Mr Subrahmanyan.
“We’re delighted and proud to see our International General Certificate qualification become a fundamental part of the training and health and safety culture of such an important and respected employer in this region of the world,” stated Teresa Budworth.
