Maruti Suzuki India (MSIL) renewed its pledge for Zero accident at all its facilities on National Safety Day. To encourage greater participation of employees in Safety, the Company announced that it will set up ‘Safety Circles’ on the lines of ‘Quality Circles’. Through Safety Circles, shop-floor supervisors and associates will form teams and suggest preventive measures in the areas of fire and safety.


To enhance reporting of unsafe practices and ‘near miss incidents’ the Company will step up training of employees and take steps to make reporting of incidents easier for employees.


Manoj Agrawal, Senior Vice President - Safety, MSIL said, “At Maruti Suzuki we have always maintained the highest standards of safety for our people. All our employees contribute to the safety culture by following safe practices at all times and also highlighting the smallest of safety risks. Safety Circle, a new initiative encourages further employee participation. We are hopeful with support from employees we can make MSIL a zero incident organization.”


The Company also kicked-off its annual month-long awareness programme on Safety. Under this a series of activities are planned to engage and inculcate safety behavior among employees. The established and successful programs on Hiyari Hatto (for near miss cases) and Kiken Yochi (hazard protection) will continue with greater focus. 


Several initiatives like safety doors for operational safety in addition to ‘two-push’ button sensors across the shop floors to safeguard arm and finger injuries helped bring down the incident rate by more than 50 percent in the last five years. Use of Kevlar gloves and sleeves (having high cut resistance) to safeguard from hand and finger injuries helped to bring down the incident rate by almost 45 percent in 2015-16 compared to 2014-15.


Coinciding with the National Safety Day, the month-long Safety Awareness will bring opportunity for employees to actively participate in engaging activities on Safety. Starting with a Safety Pledge today by all employees of the company, Safety Quizes and Slogan & Poster making competitions, First-aid training, Fire volunteer training with mock drill, training for Fork-lift and Tow-truck operation and multiple Safety audits will be conducted throughout the month.


MSIL has a robust safety management system to closely monitor and analyze any incidents at workplace especially at shop floor. MSIL is committed to OHSAS (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) guidelines, has an apex safety committee and promotes safety culture all through the year with focused activities.


Maruti Suzuki’s continuous efforts towards safety have helped it earn various awards. It is the only four wheeler company to have won the prestigious “National Safety Award for outstanding performance in industrial safety” from the Ministry of Labour for 2013 based on accident free year and based on lowest incident rate.
