Safety is true power. It has the power to create, support, and protect, just like our Sun does every day. At Waaree, we harness solar power to improve the lives of billions with clean energy. But with great power comes great responsibility, and we take our responsibility to ensure safety very seriously. Our commitment to safety is not just a policy; it is a core value that permeates every aspect of our organization.

At the heart of Waaree lies an unwavering dedication to excellence in safety. We recognize that our most valuable assets are our people. The safety of our human capital is our topmost priority, and we strive for a zero-incident workplace. This commitment extends beyond the workplace, encouraging our employees to follow best practices and continuously improve their safety measures, whether at work or in their personal lives.

Creating a safe working environment is essential for the sustainability of our organization. Waaree is powered by the Sun and driven by safety. While we chase ambitious goals, such as meeting stiff delivery deadlines, providing quality products, achieving revenue targets, and managing costs, the bedrock of all our activities is our commitment to Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS). We ensure that our operations are environmentally friendly, that our employees are healthy, and most importantly, that safety is ingrained in our DNA.

Safety at Waaree is an intrinsic part of our lives, both personal and professional. To reinforce this commitment, we have introduced seven golden rules of safety, which form the foundation of our safety-centric culture. These 7 golden rules are designed to protect our employees and ensure their well-being in various situations.

  1. Driving Safety

When driving, the maximum speed limit should not exceed 80 km/h on highways. Mandatory seat belt use and safety helmets are non-negotiable, and phone calls while driving are strictly prohibited. These measures are in place to ensure that our employees arrive safely at their destinations.

  1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The use of job-specific personal protective equipment is mandatory. PPEs are essential for safeguarding our employees against potential hazards in the workplace. Whether it’s helmets, gloves, or safety glasses, wearing the appropriate PPE is a crucial part of our safety protocol.

  1. Permit to Work

High-risk and non-routine activities, including confined space entry, must only be performed after obtaining a valid permit to work. This ensures that all necessary precautions are taken, and the risks are assessed before commencing any such activities.

  1. Fall Protection at height

Working at heights requires effective fall protection measures. This includes using harnesses, guardrails, and other safety equipment to prevent falls and injuries. Ensuring that our employees are protected when working at heights is a critical aspect of our safety strategy.

  1. No work on live energy system

Live energy systems can be dangerous. Before starting any maintenance work on such systems, it is essential to practice energy isolation. This prevents accidental energization and protects workers from potential electrical hazards.

  1. Avoid Danger Zones

Employees should never work under suspended loads, in the line of fire, or in danger zones. These areas pose significant risks, and avoiding them is crucial for maintaining a safe working environment.

  1. Get Lifting Plan Approved

All heavy lifting beyond one ton must be done through an approved lifting plan. This ensures that the lifting operations are conducted safely and efficiently, minimizing the risk of accidents and injuries.

These seven golden rules are more than just guidelines; they are a testament to our unwavering commitment to safety. By adhering to these principles, we aim to create a workplace where safety is paramount and where our employees can thrive in a secure environment.

At Waaree, our journey towards safety excellence is ongoing. We continuously evaluate and improve our safety practices to ensure that they meet the highest standards. This commitment is reflected in our robust safety programs, regular training sessions, and continuous safety performance monitoring.

In addition to our internal safety measures, we also emphasize the importance of safety in our interactions with customers and partners. Waaree’s commitment to safety extends to our comprehensive product range as well. Our solar panels and inverters are designed with safety in mind, ensuring that they meet rigorous safety standards. This includes features such as enhanced durability, better performance in all weather conditions, and advanced safety mechanisms.

Conclusion

At Waaree, safety is not just a priority; it is a way of life. Our commitment to creating a safe and secure environment for our employees, partners, and customers is unwavering. By following the seven golden rules of safety, we strive to create a workplace where safety is ingrained in our DNA. Join us in our journey towards a safer and more sustainable future. Together, we can harness the power of the Sun and drive positive change for generations to come.
