Safety in the workplace, in our homes and in the communities in which we operate is our way of life.
Sesa Goa's long effort on safety has created a safe and healthy workplace for all its employees and contract workmen's. Our aim has been always to operate with zero injuries or zero accidents and we believe that any work-related injury is preventable. We are continuously seeking to achieve this by creating a 'zero mindset'. This means 100% elimination of accidents and injury is the ultimate goal. If an incident or accident occurs, it should never happen again. All employees are expected to follow this rule.
We have well established system of reporting any incidents including the near-miss incidents which helps us to give an alarm of any unsafe conditions or unsafe acts. We have made strenuous efforts to embed our reporting system as a regular management reporting system of our safety performance. Post the reporting of an incident or accident a proper investigating is done to learn from the incident and put preventative measures in place to prevent a recurrence.
We value the safety of contractor workmen's in exactly the same way as we do for our own employees. Contractors are included in our safety data and must comply in full with our safety standards and procedures.
Our review of health & safety measures is a constantly monitored process which aims to eliminate occupational hazards to the best extent possible. Measures which are in place to achieve the same are:
Various environmental monitoring like respirable dust monitoring, noise levels are recorded by in-house laboratory for better control.
All our operations maintain comprehensive safety management systems aligned to established international standards OHSAS 18001
