At NFCL, we are committed to adopt the highest standard in Safety. Our fertilizer plant at Kakinada has an excellent safety record with 1 Million safe man hours being crossed on several occasions in the plant’s history of operations and reaching about 3 Million safe man hours. Regular internal and external audits are ensured so as to reduce urea dust in the bagging plant, reduction of noise levels, improved air quality in working areas. Personal protective equipment and related safety training is provided by the company to all the concerned associates.

After implementing OHSAS 18001 in the year 2001 in the Kakinada plant, we underwent the British Safety Council’s 5 - Star Occupational Health & Safety Audit and attained the 5 - Star rating in March 2005. In pursuance of continual improvement, we chose to implement Process Safety Management System (PSMS).

The Process Safety Management System (PSMS) addresses the inherent safety in the Chemical Process and enhances the effectiveness of our existing Safety and Occupational Health Management Systems. The PSMS was evolved as a code of practice by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), USA and is mandatory for all chemical industries in USA. The Process Safety Management System (PSMS) focuses on application of management controls to operations involving hazardous materials in a way that process hazards are identified, understood, and controlled so that process related injuries and incidents can be eliminated.

Though such a practice is not mandatory in India so far, at NFCL it is a self-initiative in line with OSHA, USA standards to update our safety systems and processes.
