We have instituted a reporting mechanism for all the 13 Department Safety Committees (DSC). A Central Safety Committee has an oversight with an active involvement of the Unit Head for any issue or unsafe act resolution.Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) tool is used to identify and quantify the risk of all the activities taking place in the plant. Basis these, action plans are prepared and implemented with short lead times. There is a representation of employees and workmen in the safety committees (50% each). The weekly safety meetings address concerns on incidents reported and equipment health. As per our SA 8000 standard, a social performance team is in place. With a worker or trade union participation of 50-60 people, the management team carries our quarterly or yearly meetings as a redressal forum.
We have robust procedures to identify instances of non-compliance with labour laws. Monitoring through management system audits, formal monitoring programs, grievance mechanisms and annual workmen and employee satisfaction surveys, we ensure any transgressions are recorded and resolved.
We also perform a rigorous process of due diligence before employing suppliers to ensure a clean, sustainable, and ethical supply chain. In FY 2017-18, we have had no reported cases of discrimination, child labour and forced labour.
We encourage diversity and equal opportunity. By 2020, our target is to increase women employees by 10 %. Apart from the benefits provided to women through compliance with the labour laws, we also provide the following amenities to our female employees.
