Employee Health and Safety
We are committed to providing a safe workplace and protecting the health and ensuring safety of all our employees.
We have created an infrastructure, established mechanisms and procedures to prevent contingencies and help protect our employees and the assets they work with by following internationally accepted standards and practices.
Our safety committee meetings are regularly conducted to encourage transparency, responsibility, openness to resolve unsafe conditions and practices. Training on various aspects of safety is conducted at Glenmark to ensure safe work practices. An initiative, Toolbox Talks’s, was conducted to encourage informal discussions on a safe and healthy work culture.
We have also established and implemented a Safety Management System as per British Safety Council’s 5 Star Safety system. We have moved from 10pt MSDS* to 16pt MSDS in early 2013, by adopting international Globally Harmonized System (GHS) by ILO. GHS is adopted by many countries in Europe, Australia, America and Asia. We are one of the few companies in India which has proactively adopted this system.
The first week of March, coinciding with National Safety Day, we at Glenmark celebrate safety week across all our facilities and offices to reiterate and generate awareness among the employees on Safety.
A testament of our efforts is the awards we have received on Occupational Health and Safety, which demonstrates our commitment to the high standards.
The concept of safety is continuously reinforced amongst our employees through a number of channels such as periodic training, emergency mock drills, safety campaigns, periodic inspections and displays on safety. This had led to increased awareness levels on safety resulting in reporting of even minor incidents.
