A culture of caring

AECOM improved safety practices on the Wave City Centre in Noida, India, accumulating 10 million safe work hours without any lost-time injuries, by promoting the importance of the company’s nine Life-Preserving Principles.

Located in the heart of Noida, India, Wave City Centre is a 152-acre (62-hectare) premium residential-commercial development comprising a dynamic mix of high-end residences, hotels and offices, multi-use studio apartments, high street shop condominiums as well as family entertainment and convention centers.

Designed to be completely self-sustainable, the project includes facilities for rainwater harvesting, sewage and water treatment plants, solid waste management, solar panels, a district cooling plant and a Bus Rapid Transit corridor.

Since AECOM began working as project and construction manager in October 2013, the safety practices on the project site have drastically improved. To date, the project has achieved more than 10 million safe work hours without any lost-time injuries.

To achieve such a strong safety record, the project team promoted the importance of AECOM’s nine Life-Preserving Principles; motivated contractors to adopt a strong safety culture; and encouraged active participation of all team members through safety committee meetings, regular training, audits, observations and inspections.
