By Regular training for workers and staff to prevent accident related to mechanical, electrical, chemical, physiological and psychological safety the Company has made "Zero incidents" as acceptable standard. Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) is our primary focus to mitigate and prevent the abnormalities. Because of our dedicated and committed efforts in continual improvement of Safety, Health and Environment area, we had received two National Awards from Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India for safety.

The Company is rigorously improving to create a better place for our next generation.
