BPCL Allows Women Chemical Engineers in Night Shift

Management lessons

Public sector Bharat Petroleum Corporation has allowed night shift for women chemical engineers. Eleven chemical engineers have taken charge as panel operators and shift-in-charge in various units in Mumbai and Kochi.

Women weren't allowed in night shifts due to certain statutory obligations. They have been provided training for six months and their job involves operations and solving problems in the units.BPCL has introduced operational reforms to ensure safety of the women officers. Women security guards have been recruited for night shift and CCTV cameras installed. The support of the families were also crucial for making the night shift operations a success.

BPCL official said that the idea behind hiring women was to dispel the notion that night shifts can't be given to women or that they are not capable of performing it.
