Employee Health and Safety

We are committed to providing a safe workplace, protecting the health and ensuring safety of all our employees and have also established and implemented a Safety Management System as per British Safety Council’s 5 Star Safety system. We have moved from 10pt MSDSto 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.

Our safety committee meetings are held regularly to encourage transparency, responsibility, openness to resolve unsafe conditions and practices. Training on various aspects of safety and safe work practices as well as ‘Toolbox Talks’ - an in-house initiative, are conducted to encourage informal discussions on a safe and healthy work culture. Glenmark also has an annual safety week celebration coinciding with National Safety Day across all facilities and offices to reiterate and generate awareness among the employees in the first week of March.

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 has led to increased awareness levels on safety resulting in reporting of even minor incidents.

The testaments of our efforts are in the awards we have received on Occupational Health and Safety showcasing our commitment to the high standards followed by us.
