1 dead in an accident at Visakhapatnam Steel Plant

Tragic news arrives as an employee of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP), died in an accident at the facility, on Wednesday.

The deceased has been identified as M Srinivasa Rao, Senior Manager (Mechanical branch) at Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. 

According to the Steel Plant authorities, Mr. Srinivasa Rao was in ‘A’ shift today. While he was working on repairing the Steel Melt Shop-1( SMS-1), on a DF BAY crane, Mr. Srinivasa Rao accidentally fell down from the crane and died on spot.

The dead body has been shifted to King George Hospital in Visakhapatnam. 

A case has been registered under Steel Plant Police Station limits and an investigation is ongoing to ascertain further details about the accident.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time in recent years that an accident has happened at the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. Last December, four people had sustained major injuries and were shifted to a hospital after a piece of hot metal had fallen on them. Apart from this, there have been quite a few fire breakouts over the years at the steel plant. Mr. Srinivasa Rao’s tragic death again highlights the need for stronger safety standards at a prestigious plant like the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.
