Message from Director/CGO

Sustainability is an integral part of business in WABAG. Almost all the projects executed by WABAG are aimed at minimizing the impact on the environment that includes reduction of power consumption; reduction of carbon emission; effluent management; use of sustainable energy and recycling practices. Waste water treatment is one of the critical indicators that drive sustainability leading to environmental protection.

WABAG execute projects for water reuse and ZLD for petrochemical industries and energy positive waste water treatment plants wherein we convert waste (bio-gas) into energy to run the waste water treatment plants on self-sustaining basis. Carbon free Green power is produced by converting the methane gas into electricity. Our Technology addresses the significant cost of running these plants by generating captive power without emission of carbon.

Further, the customer concerned is eligible for carbon credit under Kyoto Protocol. This goes to demonstrate sustainability of our technology.

Finally, WABAG continues to promote R&D efforts in this direction. In fact, currently, Chennai R&D Centre is working on projects towards achieving reduced chemical consumption and also safe disposal of membranes in an environmental friendly manner.

Performance Monitoring – Audits and assessments

The HSE Performance of sites is monitored through a well-developed Internal and external audit system. Continual improvement remains at the core as we review the Integrated Management System periodically. WABAG has a self-developed HSE index system, which helps in:

  1. Verification of the safety process and procedure implementation
  2. Identifying the gaps and areas for improvement
  3. Standardizing the HSE process across the projects
  4. Identifying the best practices and sharing with other projects

Safety Walkthrough & Committee Meetings

Site Management involvement is vital in understanding the areas of concern and taking improvement actions. At WABAG, safety committees are formed at each Project site, chaired by the head of the project, with representation from the safety team, engineers, contractors and workers. Workers are motivated to maintain a positive safety culture by showing them that their opinions are valued within the team and they are an integral part of maintaining a safe working environment. The site team also performs Safety Walks to see first-hand the safety issues and propose solutions at the
spot.

HSE Training

HSE training, both internal and external are conducted as part of a competency building and awareness creation exercise. The training is imparted across the organisation, including head offices and project/ operation & maintenance sites.

At project sites, training is given to all the personnel involved in the project (Client, contractor, sub-contractor, WABAG employees). The project sites have a specific training plan developed based on the nature of hazards. The training includes familiarisation training on HSE plans, operation control & safe operation procedures, reporting methodology, Hazard Identification and Risk Management (HIRA), Environmental Aspect/Impact. Training is provided to carry out risk assessments by a thorough analysis of the workplace hazards. The HIRA register is then provided for implementation. In every project, the lessons learnt are captured and the best practices shared are communicated
and the same is incorporated into the existing program.
