At Asian Paints, we prioritise the safety and well-being of our employees, and are committed to becoming the global benchmark for safety in coatings. Our Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) approach focusses on prevention, intervention, and collaboration. We have invested in advanced technologies and processes to minimise risks and hazards associated with manual interfaces with machinery. Safe practices and behaviours are facilitated across our manufacturing and other operational processes through well-defined frameworks, protocols, training, and awareness programmes. We share the learnings from incidents across units to prevent the recurrence of the incident at the unit and the occurrence of the same incident at the other units and improve our safety track record.

At Our OHS framework is designed to identify work-related hazards through Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA), process safety hazards through bowtie analysis, Hazard and Operability Study (HAZOP), Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) fire risks through fire risk assessment and manual material handling through manual material handling risk assessment.

We use the above to identify and analyse risks related to processes, buildings, equipment, chemicals, ergonomic hazards and fires annually. The process also focusses on developing action plans and control systems to mitigate or eliminate hazards. We train our employees on HIRA to create awareness and make them alert towards workplace hazards thereby preventing and addressing them effectively
