Safety audit by Consultivo in one of India’s largest retail stores
6th-7th March 2018, Ranchi
Consultivo was delegated to conduct an Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) audit in Ranchi at one of the largest Indian retail stores that operate as a chain of hypermarkets. Our team of auditors, Swapan K Bandopadhyay and Sumit K Ghoshal, having years of expertise & experience, conducted the safety audit within the purview of electrical safety, fire safety & general safety in the retail store.
The establishment is a hub for commercial activities where lots of household materials & all other types of commodities starting from food staff/food grain, vegetables, fruits along with electrical/electronic articles, clothing, furnishing, furniture, utensils etc. are sold.
As lots of people visit this place and lots of activities are involved during festivals or seasonal activities, it increases the risks/hazards involved and in turn, the safety concern of so many lives, property & production. Some of the potential hazards which may trigger an emergency situation are electrical short circuit, electrical fire or situations like earthquake, bomb threat, etc.
The objective of this safety audit was to verify compliance to the regulatory requirements, assessment of the effectiveness of the existing safety system, identify the areas of improvement and check conformity of systems & procedures with statutory requirements in force.
