0.0       INTRODUCTION:

This is a summary of safety rules and working procedures, which we suggest are the minimum standard practices applicable to all contractor personnel working on XXX facilities. These are the XXX rules, and are intended to supplement applicable laws and regulations of XXX Safety Manual.

0.1 ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH & SAFETY POLICY

 XXX intends that its activities will, comply with all relevant statutory and other provisions and all measures will be taken to minimize injury and ill health to its employees and other & stakeholders, who may be affected by its operations. We are committed to the integration of safety and environmental considerations in all area of corporate activity, including the design and operation of all facilities and implement a process of continual improvement in this regard. We are also committed to prevent pollution and to continuously improve our processes and system to conserve natural resources.

 0.2 Responsibility:

  1. Management and supervisory staff have the responsibility for implementing the policy throughout the company, to see that environment, health, and safety considerations are always given priority in the planning and execution of all work.
  2. All employees and contractors are expected to strictly adhere to the above policy.

In their areas, so that work is carried out with minimum risk to themselves, other and environment. 

0.3 Approach:

  1. To maintain high technical standards by employing skilled and qualified technical staff and train them for effective performance.
  2. To design, construct and operate all plant, equipment, storage areas, etc. taking into consideration safety and environmental aspects.
  3. To identify and communicate all hazard-related information about our process and raw materials to all employees, neighboring community and contractors.
  4. To train employees in firefighting, first aid, use of PPE’s, safe handling of hazardous chemicals and effectively implement ‘on-site’ emergency plan.

 1.0      IMPLEMENTATION OF EHS AT XXX.

1.1 Following focal areas are addressed by our Environmental Occupation Health and Safety Management system:

  • Conservation of resources especially Energy, Water, Fuel and Petroleum Products used in processes.
  • Optimum utilization of energy.
  • Minimum wastage & optimum utilization of diesel, lubricants, hydraulic oils, water by minimizing its leakage, spillage during storage, recycling and periodic maintenance of machinery.
  • Upkeep of equipment machinery in good working condition for maintaining their efficiency levels by periodic servicing and checking as per maintenance schedule.
  • Reduce waste generation in the manufacturing of moldings & sleeves.

Fire, Spillage of chemicals & oil in large quantities, Gas leakage in large quantities are identified as potential foreseeable emergencies in our nature of operations. A separate procedure is in place to address these environmental emergencies. Management Programs are formed in order to make permanent changes in the existing systems. Operating Control Procedures in different departments are implemented to maintain the processes under controlled conditions. These programs & procedures are implemented on the departmental level; any deviations are recorded & taken up in Management Review (Core group) meeting by Management Representative. All employees are aware of the EHS systems and their roles & responsibilities for implementing the same through rigorous training.

Ultimately our system aims at continual improvement. Once the Objectives / Targets are achieved/implemented through Management Programs, new Objectives & targets demanding a higher level of environmental performance will be set & achieved. This journey for continual improvement is ongoing & endless. We have just made the beginning. We are sure that our perseverance, patience, untiring efforts & inner urge shall help us achieve this noble cause of protecting our environment.
