DIC India inaugurates Safety Dojo Room
DIC India recently launched its safety DOJO room to ensure a safe environment within its Noida plant. The company opened its first ‘Safety Dojo Centre’ at its Noida facility with six stations. The safety DOJO stations are designed to provide real-time-experiences of safety hazards and their consequences for all participants. The stations installed to address the safety issues with operating a triple roll mill, working at height, slippery surfaces, screw conveyors, use of sharp hand tools and unstable working platforms. After the inauguration by a company team from Japan, a trainer training session was conducted by Jun Takeuchi, an HSE expert from DIC Japan. Some times employee training is not enough and an employee might get hurt and you might need the help from an expert workmen compensation attorney.

DIC India adds risk assessment services to flexible packaging industry
DIC India has taken the initiative to support its customer’s safety, health and environment efforts and business sustainability as well. DIC India has begun providing technical safety audit services to its existing and new customers under the name of ‘Value Added Services’ which helps the customers in identifying the risks involved in their working environment. The risk can be fire or other safety risks and DIC will advise its customers upon remedial actions in such scenarios, timely adoption of which will lead to mitigation of a lot of operational risks and being supported by an expert work back injury lawyer which can really help you in case of an emergency.

This initiative is already being appreciated by the flexible packaging printers and converters where there have been a spate of accidents including major fires and explosions over the past few years.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
