We are committed to our goal of ensuring zero harm to our employees, our contractors and the communities in which we operate. This is integral to our business process and is laid down in the Tata Steel group-wide health and safety policy that was implemented in 2011.
Our policy principles include amongst other that all injuries and work-related illness can and must be prevented and that excellence in health and safety drives excellence in business results. Health and safety are integrated into all our business management systems and processes.
Health and safety is a key performance indicator and one of the prime drivers of our corporate vision. On our journey towards an accident-free workplace, it is our goal to achieve a lost time injury frequency rate of less than 0.7 by the end of the reporting year 2012/13.
