BMC issues circular to builders to make construction sites monsoon-safe
The BMC has ordered that builders not perform excavation work during the monsoon because of the three site cave-ins that were recorded last year.

MUMBAI: The BMC’s building projects department has written to all developers, reminding them to take all essential precautions at their construction sites to prevent any disasters or disease outbreaks as the monsoon approaches. The circular was emailed online to developers and their apex body, the Maharashtra Chamber of Housing Industry, as well as to all development sites, according to Sunil Rathod, chief engineer of the Development Plan (DP).

The BMC has ordered that builders refrain from excavating during the monsoon until all essential safety and preventative measures are implemented on site, supervised by their designated structural engineers and safety officials, in response to the three site cave-ins that were recorded last year. This is to ensure that there are no accidents.

In addition to regulations pertaining to excavations, other civil work is subject to oversight by the structural engineers, geotechnical engineers, and safety officers of the builders, who are tasked with verifying the stability and safety of barricading, scaffolding, safety nets, machinery, and cranes.

The DP department has also directed developers to make sure that there isn’t any buildup of water or garbage near construction sites to stop mosquitoes from reproducing and transmitting dengue and malaria. Developers or the public health department of the BMC are required to schedule routine blood tests and medical examinations for laborers working on the project. Additionally, the developers have been instructed to have the BMC ward manage their insect problem and provide mosquito nets to all laborers.

Aside from this, builders must ensure that all hoardings, steel structures, tower cranes, parking structures, transit camps, and temporary buildings are safe and structurally sound. If strengthening is necessary, it must be done so in accordance with the guidelines set forth by a registered structural engineer.

Additionally, developers have been directed to erect barriers around all excavation sites and implement all necessary safety precautions. Locations that are prone to landslides should be closely monitored. It is the responsibility of the architect and safety officer to confirm that all required safety precautions have been taken.

Manoj Daisaria, a senior architect, stated both landowners and housing societies should receive the same instructions. “They ought to exercise caution around trees, hoardings, and other things.”
