Health, Safety and Environment Initiatives at HFE
Hero Future Energies is one of the leading independent power producers in the renewable energy sector. This corporate entity has a long-standing commitment towards the health and safety of the employees, customers and stakeholders as well as to the protection of the environment in the communities in which it is involved. A responsible attitude towards the three elements is what leads the company in striving towards futuristic and clean energy. On this journey of achieving the safest health, safety and best environment performance, there exists no room for negligence at HFE.
Together, we are creating a healthy future.
At Hero Future Energies, the company extensively covers all the occupational diseases and illnesses such as high noise impact, which may directly affect most employees, the communities in which they operate, and the business. HFE has formally launched the process of noise monitoring at their point of operation and a shadow flicker assessment for difficulties related to vision. In conjunction to that, HFE has increased the awareness levels and offers on ground training sessions to help employees battle illnesses and diseases.
Safety is in the detail.
The company considers itself responsible for creating, maintaining and promoting an environment that is conducive to optimal health conditions among the employees. It regulates large amounts of resources to combat workplace hazards and adherence to a safe working environment. Special programs have been initiated with the objective of encouraging worker and contractor safety on the ground in all places of operation.
One serious effort from our end is investing in maintenance. As Hero Future Energies’ Vice President, Operations and Projects Maintenance, Atul Raaziada emphasizes, “maintenance is essentially a relative function of time and cost and holds its own importance in the lifecycle of machinery.
The team at HFE is committed towards zero accidents and injuries and in order to avert an emergency, a well-defined Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is implemented.
“Sustainable development is the pathway to the future we want for all.”
By adopting a proactive approach and implementing corporate policies like the ‘Green Code’, Hero Future Energies focusses on achieving a sustainable development of the environment. Through the execution of advanced practices, it strives to create improved conditions in the environment in the locations where it operates.
The primary goal at Hero Future Energies will always be to ensure innovative and optimum solutions to the consumers while simultaneously employing verified approaches towards protecting the health, safety and the environment.
