The centre will conduct certified training courses that develop ‘Safety Leaders’ in the project based businesses and industries.

Thomas Fuhrmann, CEO and managing director, TÜV Rheinland SouthAsia, said, “Siemens has a deep commitment to improving the safety of construction and project sites in India, and TÜV Rheinland is proud to be able to support Siemens in this venture. As the training

Sunil Mathur, managing director and chief executive officer, Siemens, said, “The Global Skill Centre for Occupational Safety is a critical milestone in Siemens’ journey of driving a culture of zero harm in the industry. The training centre is designed to meet the requirements of the industry for high-quality training on site safety measures. We hope to be the catalysts of a transformation in the approach toward safety and support the industry’s efforts to maintaina Zero Harm Culture at project sites and manufacturing units.”

The flagship programme ofthe centre – Sitrust or Siemens & TÜV Rheinland Unique Safety Training – is a three-day programme that includes extensive practical training using a simulated construction site environment. The course provides an experiential learning of hazard and risk identification, safety planning, risk mitigation and implementation of controls. The unique feature of the practical training programme is the concept of Story Boards – a case study-based learning on safety management at the workplace. In addition, the training modules also include specialized training based on real-life scenarios of an operational nature in project or construction sites, such as electrical safety, fire safety and working at height.

The target audience for the programme includes occupational safety practitioners, project and site managers, construction managers, construction site supervisors, safety marshals and site engineers.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
