And as a part of this, GSPC Gas - Rajkot team had taken various initiatives and arranged programmes in last few weeks like 'Safety Talks' with villagers and awareness programme for school children.

Safety awareness programmes were arranged in the three villages of Vavdi, Pal, Dholera surrounding Rajkot where GSPC Gas has recently expanded gas pipeline network for domestic PNG connections to the villages. Similar programmes for students of two schools - the Virani High School and the Pathak School were also arranged. Around 450 students of the 8th and the 9th standard participated in the awareness programmes.

Awareness programme for school children and safety talks with villagers focussed on the Do's & Don'ts in handling of natural gas, actions to be taken in case of leakage, fire or emergency, contact numbers of GSPC Gas and the pictures of typical installations. The programme also covered the benefits of natural gas and PNG connections. Teams of HSE, O&M. Project, RoU and C&M officials conducted these programmes.

Safety booklets, emergency instruction and contact cards were distributed to all during all the programmes and sweets were also distributed to school children.
