Taloja Site Marks One Year of Being Incident and Injury Free

- September 02, 2016 -

On August 29, the Dow India site at Taloja successfully completed one year of being incident- and injury-free. This achievement was celebrated with all the employees and contract staff of the site. Ahmadalishah Khadar, EHS delivery leader, and T. Raghunathan, Taloja site leader, gave motivational speeches, which were followed by a cake-cutting ceremony.

This milestone gains added significance due to the fact that the site had three injuries in 2015, prompting Dow India leadership to put together an EHS intervention plan in Taloja. Credit goes to the local team for successfully implementing the plan, in spite of some major organizational changes in the plant and other internal and external challenges.

Employees who had been injured in past incidents shared their learnings, emphasizing that working safely and following procedures are essential to keeping the work environment injury-free. Raghunathan emphasized that all employees need to continue with this trend in the future, with safety being a top priority at all sites.
