no stone unturned to ensure the safety of
our workers and the environment. We have
stringent pro-environment, pro-employee
policies and maintain complete transparency
in our activities.
Our safety campaign called, “Stop
1 minute for Safety” sensitizes plant
workers about safety at the beginning of
every shift. Adherence to safety norms is
a pre-condition to employment and we use
the “commend or condemn” approach
to ensure norms are followed.
The employee's performance in health and
safety matters is a critical component of
the annual appraisal. Hikal has a Passport
campaign where initiatives are rewarded
and slackness is penalized.
We have an emergency response and crisis
management plan. Our plants are well equipped
to handle emergencies. We conduct surprise
mock drills to keep employees on their toes,
in the event of any untoward situation.
At a macro level, we are part of the district
level crisis group and hold meetings that
are attended by government officials and
executives across industry.
Our manufacturing sites have been selected
by authorities to demonstrate our emergency
preparedness to the community and industry.
