    tremors felt in LEELA building a while back… U can see the entire building has been evacuated and the crowd in front of leela… Heard that there was an earth quake somewhere in Indonesia earlier today which recorded a magnitude of 8.7 on the Richter scale and Tsunami warnings have been issued…

  • BINU

    Thanks for the updation.

    We were sitting in our office in Thejaswini at the time of the earthquake.

    Tremors were felt in Bhavani as well. But didnt see any evacuation process here.

    If any building in technopark were not initiated the evacuation process, that should be considered as a serious offense. because the building like bhavani is multi storied and thousands of employees are working there. Almost all other buildings including the Infosys SEZ campus were evacuated, and we can’t predict how the situations would be in the light of the earthquake warnings.

    Evacuation in the time of such warnings is a MUST and should be followed. if something wrong happened, who would take the responsibility? It may sound silly, but you can’t predict how serious the mishaps would be.

    However, the authorities would take utmost care in evacuating the buildings during mock fire drill. Yesterday there was a mock drill in Bhavani, and all employess were stricly evacuated. Seems like, the process is intended merely for mock drills. And the authorities dont know what to do if some thing happens in real.

  • anilkumar

    earthquake is very dangerous. so whenever a warning comes it is mandatory that the security people and the responsible people should evacuate the buildings and ensure the safety of people working there. so if any building in technopark did not done it, that is a serious violation of work place safety.

    please consider it at least next time, no matter of the severity of the incident. because that is the best and reccomended practice
