Safety & Health

Tata Chemicals Limited (TCL)'s ongoing journey towards 'Target Zero Harm' is focused on key challenges while balancing stakeholder needs.

The company deals with the challenges of chemical hazards and occupational safety and health. Our CSR, Safety and Sustainability (CSS) committee was formed to focus exclusively on these challenges. The Corporate SHE policy is an umbrella policy, and subsidiaries' policies align with local regulatory and safety directorates. Voluntary standards, such as OHSAS 18001, British Safety Council guidelines and AIChE-CCPS guidelines, help ensure continual improvement in SHE performance. British Safety Council awarded our fertiliser manufacturing sites with the 'Sword of Honour' award. In 2014-15, the Mithapur and Haldia plants were recertified for British Safety Council's 5-star rating. 

Our journey towards 'Target Zero Harm' ensures that our Long-Term Strategic Plan (LTSP) focuses on key SHE challenges and risks, while balancing stakeholder needs. These are evaluated from an engineering and/or process improvement perspective. Safety performance is linked to individual Performance Linked Variable Pay (PLVP) or incentives. Senior leadership plays a critical role in fostering a culture of safety by establishing clear and transparent policies. Our cross-functional teams for safety improvement initiatives includes:

  • Suraksha Jyot (Mithapur)
  • Process Safety Management (Babrala)
  • SRESHTO (Haldia)
  • Safety Amnesty (TCE)
