WORKPLACE HAZARDS OF A MANUFACTURING UNIT IN CHENNAI

A comprehensive study evaluating workplace hazards and monitoring post mitigation methods was carried out for a lead acid battery manufacturing unit of a major agricultural products manufacturer. This was carried out in four phases consisting of on-site assessments for identifying EHS hazards, preparing JHA’s, prioritization of Hazards based on their damage potential, on-site initial health & environmental monitoring, off-site analysis & compilation of findings and finally and on-site verification of effectiveness of actions completed. This was a pioneering work for us, as just within 6 months the systemic improvements implemented brought about obvious and promising results.
