VADODARA: Rag pickers will soon be observed dressed in uniforms, wearing hand protection and collecting garbage with Central Panel of Personnel Education (CBWE) launching an initiative to supply them with health insurance and other benefits. CBWE released the project on Saturday along with two other projects polluting of the environment control steps and the grooming of 18, 000 loaf of bread earners by rural and unorganised industries.
National director of CBWE Sadhan Ghosh released all three projects at their very own regional business office in the city. CBWE can be part of ministry of time and job, Government of India, and these tasks are targeted at enhancing life of downtrodden as well as working class people in countryside, organised and unorganised groups of the society.
" Our plank will work in association with respective cities and nagarpalikas. We will likely collaborate with local hospitals, NGOs and industries to assist in taking the project forward, " said Ghosh.
The panel plans for making ragpickers aware about occupational health risks. " We all plan to provide them with uniforms, personal equipment and free-of-cost frequent health check-ups. At a later stage, we can help them speak to recycling products where they will sell the garbage and acquire some money. A self-help group will also be created so that they can tackle their problems independently, " added Ghosh.
Included in the pollution control project, locations where maximum toxins are found in the air have been determined in the metropolis. " We all will monitor the polluting of the environment level in selected areas in the city. To help in controlling pollution, we would end up being giving ideas to two-wheelers and car individuals on reducing the use of gasoline, " Ghosh said.
