Congratulations on the launch of the GSR Employees & Operations Safety program “Protecto”.
This is an extremely important step towards showing how EHS fits in with our Goals and Success measures. Our Safety record is better than the general average, especially considering that our Employees work with molten glass, running electricity and meticulous electronic component assembly processes. But, it’s not good enough. We intend to make GSR the Safest Company to work for with a sustained record of ZERO Injuries at all times.
We will continue to pursue vigorous enforcement of Health and Safety standards as a foundation on which we will build stronger Compliances, Partnerships and Capability enhancing programs at all our locations. We will provide all necessary resources and would like each of you to play a leadership role in making GSR the Safest Place of Work.
All the very best
