Bhushan asked to register all workers

Bhubaneswar: State labour minister Bijayshree Routray on Monday asked the Bhushan plant authorities to register all the workers of the unit, functioning in Dhenkanal. The minister’s directive came in the wake of a series of mishaps in past few days where at least four workers died and 11 were injured.

“We want detail information about the workers. We have asked the plant authorities to register all workers.”

In a meeting with Bhushan officials, Routary expressed concern over the recent mishaps and urged the official to take immediate steps to enhance safety measures for the workers.

To ensure better safety for the workers, the state government has also asked plant officials to cover all sections of workers including regular and contractual under the ESI scheme.
