Follow SOPs to avoid future mishaps: Government to steel companies
Worried over the recent accidents at JSPL and SAIL plants, the government has asked the industry to stick to Standard Operating Procedures to avoid any further mishaps, saying there will be “no compromise” on that.
“(There should be) no negligence. It is clear that you have to adhere to the SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures). If you do that, accidents will not happen,” Steel Secretary Aruna Sharma told PTI.
Asserting that security is extremely vital for any production plant, including steel, Sharma said she strongly believes that in India the accidents occur as people have turned a blind eye to SOPs. “These are laid out principles. You have started forgetting it and then you do patchwork…you have to get back to the drawing board and set these principles again. There is no compromise on that. This has to be done,” the secretary said.
