"Harmonised `Life Safety Rules’ were developed and released across Cipla sites globally, including subsidiaries. Employees and contractors were trained to adopt these 15 mandatory rules. Our major sites in India were audited for electrical and fire safety by international auditing and consultancy agencies. Actions were progressed on addressing the identified gaps. This included positive initiatives towards further strengthening the existing safety infrastructure at manufacturing sites. Senior management maintained close oversight in monitoring the progress made. To sustain high performance on safety, the sites initiated the concept of 24 X 365 EHS surveillance by EHS personnel. Adequate manpower was allocated towards this initiative. Spread over the year, a number of EHS training programmes on various important topics were organised to refresh & enhance the learning to employees and contractors" page 32 of annual report 2017-18.
