SAFETY

Introduction

Safety

"We do not claim to be more unselfish, more generous or more philanthropic than other people. But we think we started on sound and straightforward business principles, considering the interests of the shareholders, our own, and the health and welfare of the employees, the sure foundation of our success." -  Frank Harris in Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata: A Chronicle of His Life

This quote from J N Tata, the founder of the Tata Group, epitomises his visionary zeal for building an enterprise on the strong foundations of care for the health, safety and welfare of employees. Over the years, caring for employees, especially in terms of their safety and health has been ingrained in the DNA of Tata companies and in many ways is a differentiator of Tata as a caring employer.

 

Tata Business Excellence Group (TBExG) has set up a Group  Safety & Health function to define strategy, steer and lead the efforts in enhancing safety culture and performance and overall achieve safety excellence in Tata Group companies, while interfacing with MDs / CEOs, senior leadership and senior safety professionals.

 

TBExG’s effort in Safety & Health is based on four strategic building blocks:

1. Commonality and Convergence efforts on safety andhealth through a common approach, terminologies, strategies and policies, so as to align efforts on a common platform

2. Training & Capability Building among group companies in safety and health;

3. Transparency & Sharing in terms of reporting and share lessons learnt, besides facilitating best practices transfer across group companies;

4. Verification and Assurance of safety andhealth regulatory and group requirements.
