JICA Reaffirms Commitment to Safety in Indian Infrastructure Projects
JICA Restates Its Commitment to Safety in Projects, Including Indian Infrastructure

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) reaffirms its commitment to raising safety standards in India’s infrastructure and construction sites on this World Day for Safety and Health at Work. JICA, which prioritizes safety above all else, is in charge of more than 80 significant infrastructure projects, such as the 2022 anniversary of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and the 2024 opening of the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL). There are also ongoing notable projects like the Northeast Region Network Connectivity Improvement Project (NERNCIP) and the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail (MAHSR).

The foundation of these initiatives is JICA’s dedication to fostering a safety culture in India and providing substantial technical assistance to strengthen safety and quality standards. JICA has been unwavering in its pursuit of safety in construction work since its president brought it to attention in 2015. With around 30 lakh people dying from work-related illnesses and accidents per year, an ILO report from 2023 emphasizes its importance on a worldwide scale.

Safety in the workplace must be given top priority as India strives for global economic leadership. In order to improve safety throughout India’s infrastructure and construction sector, JICA is actively leading these efforts. In order to improve the safety of construction sites, the JICA India Office has taken a number of steps since FY22. These steps include sending out safety experts, incorporating the JICA Standard Safety Specifications (JSSS) into contracts, performing on-site inspections, hosting safety seminars, and working with the Safety and Health Administration of India.

The Chief Representative of JICA India, Saito Mitsunori, stressed the importance of maintaining worker safety in India’s construction industry on this particular occasion. Given the industry’s projected 71 million workers, it is imperative to recognize the inherent hazards associated with it. JICA is still dedicated to eradicating construction accidents by implementing strict safety procedures and programs, which include professional supervision and all-encompassing measures.
