Environment Health and Safety Management


Environment Health and Safety Management

We are committed to environmental stewardship across the value chain. All our manufacturing sites are ISO-14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified thus conforming to world Environment, Health and Safety standards. The primary objective of our EHS programme is to minimize the impact of our operations on the environment, on our employees and on communities in surrounding areas.

Health & Safety

To ensure that all our employees are at minimal risk, we follow the "Best Practices" programme at all plants. This includes:

Health
  • Emergency Response and Crisis Management Cell.
  • Occupational Health Centres.
  • Regular Industrial Hygiene surveys.
  • Health Risk Assessment studies.
Safety
  • Mandatory safety training for both employees and contractors.
  • Chemical Management system.
  • HAZOP studies for each product and pilot plant batch.
  • Risk Analysis before the construction of a new facility and the modification of an existing one.
  • Elaborate fire fighting systems comprising alarm systems, manual call points, sprinkler systems, pressurized fire hydrant system are in operation at all plants.

Effective implementation of these steps is ensured through a management system in which the EHS Head (reporting directly to the plant head) drives all EHS initiatives in the plant. At the corporate level, the Corporate EHS Head conceptualizes and coordinates EHS activities and initiatives, and reports directly to the Chief Operating Officer (COO). The safety performance of the company is reviewed at the level of COO and Corporate EHS Head on a monthly basis and at the Board level on a quarterly basis.
