Safety measures lacking at HPCL refinery: BMS

Special Correspondent

VISAKHAPATNAM: Safety, though a management buzzword, is a casualty at the grassroots level in the Visakha Refinery of Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited, and its implementation is only on paper, according to the district unit of the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS).

In a memorandum submitted to the Joint Chief Inspector of Factories here on Wednesday by the unit's president K. Bhavani Shankarudu and its secretary D.R.S. Satyanarayana, to mark the eighth anniversary of the blast in the refinery that had claimed 70 lives, the BMS unit accused the management of "entrusting hazardous and perilous works to innocent and ignorant workmen, without providing appropriate safety gadgets, resulting in frequent accidents". Earlier, the BMS activists staged a dharna in front of the office of the Joint Chief Inspector of Factories demanding safety measures.
