Considering this, the leaders emphasized the importance of introducing legislation to take stringent action against the use of counterfeit wires and cables or substandard quality wires by developers. Counterfeit products are a growing concern in India, which ends in huge losses for the country. Above all, counterfeit wires are an alarming issue that endangers the lives of consumers as they are made of poor-quality materials. Wire and cable manufacturers can play a key role in bolstering safety in the country.
To address these serious risks, Mr. Shreegopal Kabra, Managing Director, RR Kabel, and past president, IEEMA, accompanied by S. Gopa Kumar, MD, Cape Electric, and Member, NFE (National Federation of Engineers for Electrical Safety) and Kirti Kabra, Director, RR Kabel highlighted the lack of priority given to high-quality wires and cables in India.
Mr Kabra shared that RR Kabel was the first to introduce LS0H (Low Smoke, Zero Halogen) wires in India, as these wires do not produce a toxic combination of gas, acid, and smoke in case of any kind of accident. It is also the only company in India to have the 450001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System, ensuring a healthy and safe work environment for its entire staff.
