Company stresses on maintaining healthy body & mindset for its construction labourers
NewZNew (S A S Nagar) : India’s leading real estate developer Emaar MGF is conducting a fortnight-long free health checkup and screening program for construction labourers and staff employed at it project sites in Gurgaon and Mohali. The health camp, being organized from 17th-29th October 2016, is one of the key initiatives undertaken by the company under its Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) management practices.
The camp, aimed at ensuring the wellbeing of workers and staff, is being conducted at the company’s project sites including Mohali Hills in Mohali, and Palm Terraces Select, Marbella, Palm Hills, Palm Garden, Imperial Garden, Gurgaon Greens, Digital Greens, Palm Drive, Emerald Estate, Emerald Hills, Emerald Plaza in Gurgaon.

The health of our workers and staff is of prime importance to us and therefore, we constantly strive to provide our employees and on-site laborers with health screening facilities under our HSE program. Most of their time is spent on our project sites, and it becomes imperative to conduct these camps regularly for safeguarding their health. Such camps not only help in diagnosing the health conditions of the workers but also in preventing the onset of any kind of disease.”
