Dear Raghu,
It is satisfying to see that you take my notes seriously. I write all these only to stimulate interest in the subject among the youngsters.
Even with all the stringent rules and regulations safety standards at work place have to improve a lot.
I can not blame the top executives. Modern management personnel are not like those of nineteen sixties. Now we get well educated professionals as executives who understand the implications.
When I point my index fingers to others I realize that three of my fingers are pointed towards me. On rechecking I realize that we have to blame only safety personnel for the continuing weakness in safety performance. Often they are acting like puppets in front of executives instead of presenting safety recommendations and requirements without fear of reprimand.
Let us do to our might as professionals.
(Also kindly check whether it is prefatory meeting or preparatory meeting)

Dear Kesava Pillai Sir
Since very long I was behind finding out the answer to one of my small doubt, whihch generated in my mind from posted scaffold questionaire from you...However I have came to know the following answer:
Embossed means the metal is commercial grade or strength as stamped or certified by an engineer.
Nonembossed is something we buy from local hard ware store or dealer or make on site.
Also on Embossed pipes we can see the marking of following things in each one meter:
1. IS Marking
2. Heavy, Medium or Light Duty
3. Manufactourer name.
Thanks very much for makes me think about the above and helping in learning a new thing... If anything wrong I mentioned above, please correct me...
Hope you will keep on supporting the forum with your valuable inputs...
