Safety review an important job in Engineering Management

Last week has gone by very fast, there were some long tiring days with meetings, some commitments, some new issues which came up and were unexpected, but it gives satisfaction when few things important are achieved for the sake of the  company, its operating personnel working somewhere else.

Safety review with our HSE team was an important job done by our team to ensure that some operating personnel, somewhere working in a different country where our group operates, will work in a safe environment and to the extent possible don't make avoidable mistakes while working.



As I learnt when I was a young engineer in the maintenance field, accidents often have some of the reasons below:

1. Unsafe Condition

2. Unsafe Act

3. Both unsafe condition and unsafe act.

As a part of the engineering management team, my job is to ensure a better plant layout abiding by the rules and regulations in force as well as to ensure safe operating conditions which means to ensure that no unsafe condition exists in an industrial plant.

Loving Windows 10 Mobile for its great compatibility and Universal Apps despite the App-gap

I have been using Windows 10 on my Lumia smartphones for the last 6 months. I'm very much impressed with the hard work done by Microsoft. First Windows phone I used was with Windows 8 which was a bit different and difficult compared to Windows 8.1. However coming from Blackberry Curve 9300, it was a great welcome OS. The Windows 8.1 stole the show with very fluid, stylish and simple design.
Windows 10 mobile started off with lot of bugs and hits and misses, but that is how any development work happens. The difference is that Microsoft chose to provide these builds for public use if they join the 'Windows Insider' program.
I became an insider and have been enjoying Windows 10 since then. At first, after a few days of experiencing the builds I switched back to Windows 8.1 considering that I had only one Lumia then and I was using it for the office work. As the Windows Insider program states that those risks shall be 'understood' and the primary phone is not reco…

Oh My God - Bollywood movie with a True message

I watched Bollywood movie "Oh My God" few days ago on Youtube (hope that was the official channel). It was excellent!

Maybe some orthodox people think that it was blasphemy. But as far as I know blasphemy concept doesn't exist in Hindu philosophy and I'm very happy about it.

At no point of time in the movie, the belief on God was questioned! The blind belief and meaningless customs and traditions were questioned!

I have watched this movie and laughed wholeheartedly at various scenes! Maybe the people with blind beliefs on God might have got hurt very badly! It is their problem.

Zuari Cement, Italcementi, CTG and 11 years of experience

Few things in life are so evident and so attracted to our lives in hindsight! My association with M/s. Zuari Cement (the erstwhile Texmaco Cement) and with M/s. Italcementi Group has been a good example of one such unconscious connection since my childhood.

I'm generally a good observer of things and I've developed this skill over time that I learnt most of the things I use at my work place or at home looking and observing how many other people were doing better than me at that particular point of time.

I am particularly fond of looking at the logos and remembering the brand names since my childhood.

The old Texmaco logo of 'Ramaiah' mason (mestri as called in Telugu) with a spade in hand was the symbol of their cement factory. This advertisement and branding was so popular during the years of 1990s that whenever we used to travel to Yerraguntla from Proddatur for taking the 'Rayalaseema' express to Hyderabad.
