Safety of our people is of utmost importance to us. To achieve this we have adopted a shared responsibility approach, with increased engagements at all levels of workforce and strengthening the safety culture at SSMI. We are taking steps to reduce reportable incidents, minimize injuries and regularly monitor the Safety Activity Rate (SAR) and Safety Perfect Days at our plant.
We collaborate with various industry peers, the Mahindra Group and government bodies including the Directorate General, Factory Advice Service and Labour Institutes, Directorate of Industrial Safety and Health and American Society of Safety Engineers for best practices in safety. With a futuristic approach for tackling emergencies at operations, we have developed an exclusive emergency preparedness plan for SSMI.
Discussions are held with the plant safety committee along with department level safety subcommittee members on specific issues related to hazard identification, risk assessment, determination and mitigation.
To provide good opportunities for improving the health of workers SSMI has its own Occupational Health Centre. Medical Centre is having established infrastructural and in-house facilities to ensure services to the SSMI, contract employees in Plant & families in the colony. The aims and objectives of the department is to provide a preventive, curative and supportive services to all employees.
Apart from Occupational health activity we are promoting health awareness program, free medical check-up & treatment in surrounding community.
As a part of continual improvement in safety management, in the past four years, reportable accidents has been reduced significantly and we are keen to move to a zero harm rate. Our Management is shown commitment of Safety through our EHS policy & we have certified for OHSAS 18001:2007 & ISO 14001:2004.
