Health & Safety First
At Sai Deepa, the entire management team is driving safety very diligently. Many initiatives have been taken to reinforce the fundamentals. It is a continuous process and Sai Deepa will always keep Safety on top priority.
Near Miss Recording
National Safety Council (NSC) and OSHA Alliance defines the “Near Misses” as events that could have led to bodily harm and/or property loss but didn't happen this time. However, next time, a serious injury could easily result from the same or similar circumstances.
Sai Deepa has developed a register to record such near misses on daily basis. Formats in local language are kept on the shop floor so that the workers can fill up as required.
Hazard Identification & Risk Management
Hazard Identification Risk Assessment (HIRA) is a process of defining and describing hazards by characterizing their probability, frequency, and severity and evaluating adverse consequences, including potential losses and injuries. Sai Deepa does this at own premises, vendors & work sites.
Learning is a continuous process. Monthly Safety Trainings, Fire Drills & Site Safety trainings are done on continuous basis. Financial budgets are increased every year for these activities.
All employees in factory and also those who are deployed on customer sites have to get themselves examined annually. Medical Check up is a mandatory activity at Sai Deepa. This was happening even before the pandemic and shall continue on regular basis.
Safety at Customer Site
The Sai Deepa team regularly conducts the Tool Box Meetings. These are informal meetings that take place to focus on topics related to safety. Specific actions, hazards, practices etc. are discussed.
These are very short meetings & are done before work.
During the pandemic, these meetings were a great help to share information & discuss the issues like social distancing, convincing family & others to continuously wear mask etc. Regular updates of covid in the areas were discussed along with other topics.
