Safety is the Most Important Factor

At Jubilant, the safety of our employees at work and the public at large are of utmost importance. The main objectives of the safety system are to minimize the risk of injury or illness to employees by ensuring appropriate infrastructure, advanced operational controls, safety training, information, and equipment needed. As a responsible organization, we practice strict compliance with all applicable statutory requirement. Additionally, we comply with all regulations and laws applicable to our activities.

The Basic Elements of the Laboratory Safety Program are:

  • The technical safety program led by the laboratory in-charges/group leader and external trainers.
  • Laboratory safety support and training by Environmental Health and Safety.
  • Guidelines/instruction and oversight by lab in-charges and EHS coordinators.
  • Periodical safety audit by safety in-charge and cross-functional stakeholders.

Implementing our EHS Responsibilities
