Shine Safely - Webinar

In a significant stride towards enhancing safety measures within the solar photovoltaic (PV) sector, Inspire Clean Energy (ICE) successfully hosted the “Shine Safely” Safety Webinar on August 18th. The event focused on fortifying solar PV installations across the Indian Subcontinent, emphasising the imperative need for secure and safe solar PV sites. With the exponential growth of solar PV installations in the region, the webinar shed light on the escalating awareness and proactive initiatives undertaken by various institutions to implement stringent safety protocols. The discourse expanded to encompass the economic repercussions and GDP setbacks caused by work-related injuries, underlining the urgency for
robust safety practices. 

Central to the discussions was the shift from mere “namesake safety” to the pragmatic realm of “Practical safety.” The webinar introduced attendees to E&Y’s acclaimed four-step approach for effective safety implementation. An interesting facet illuminated during the discourse was the misconception surrounding ergonomic safety, often wrongly relegated as a lower priority compared to other safety aspects. The event provided a platform to showcase the pioneering “Shine Safely” program developed by ICE. A highlight of the program was its unique approach of utilising Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and a continuous process improvement framework. These methodologies acted as catalysts, significantly enhancing safety ratings amongst end customers and bolstering the confidence of on-site team members.
