An estimated 2.3 million construction workers (roughly 65% of the entire construction industry), work on or with scaffolds*. Observers would agree that scaffolding operations involve a complex asset base of resources

Scaffolding operations entail many complex but mandatory safety processes that have contributed to losses in kind and cash if not followed accurately. One of the most common losses observed, is in relation to material losses involved

We all remember the iconic image of 11 workers sitting on a beam, 69 floors high of an under construction Empire State Building in 1931. We remember that image for many different reasons, mostly positive but from a safety perspective

A 4-pole ELCB, providing passage to balanced 3 phase & 1 neutral through it’s torroid forming the primary winding of the sensitive current transformer, serves very effectively to guard against leaking current of the order of 5 mA – 30 mA -50 mA and beyond , with prompt clearance of the leaking circuit in a matter of 30-50-100….m.seconds.The consumer side is distributed 3-phase loads plus some single-phase loads. Problem arises when the main 3-phase, 4 wire balanced supply line is switched off by the supply agency and alternative stand-by 3-phase balanced supply is not available.
The gap may be asked to fulfill with 3 Nos separate sources of 1-phase diesel generators, the voltage of which shall be
