The Renewable energy sector is evolving at a rapid pace and we understand that our OH&S processes need to be best in class in order to achieve our vision of building the best renewable energy company in the world. Considering this we have developed our OH&S standards in consultation with DuPont Sustainable Solutions. We involved our operations team to ensure that our process of development of standards and procedures is fully integrated within the organizational culture/way for of working. We are making all efforts to set a benchmark for the renewable energy companies in all aspects of business including OH&S.
Renew Power has a structured Safety Governance process with an Apex Committee led by the Chairman & MD supervising and guiding the functioning of four committees. These committees have been formed on PDCA approach (Plan, Do, Check, Act) and each committee is led by a senior leader who is a member of apex committee. These committees are (i) Policies and Procedure Committee (ii) Corporate Implementation Committee (iii) Audit and Monitoring Committee (iv) Capability Building Committee. Implementation teams have been formed in each business vertical ie. Solar, Wind, Asset Management and B2B, led by a senior leader (member of apex committee).
This Integrated organization structure has been formed to drive Safety culture in the organization where in leaders demonstrate keen interest in driving Safety across sites and offices. We have developed ReNew specific HSE standards and procedures as per risk identified for the business. We have developed competency by training cross functional team members from business to support the HSE Team.
HSE Metrix and performance reporting is a very important part of communication to all stakeholders. We have a dedicated online tool “Gensuite” for real time reporting of incidents, unsafe acts and conditions and HSE related audits. The observations are tracked through action tracking system (ATS) for the closure actions. We also communicate the OH&S Status to our board members on a monthly basis covering all important parameters. OH&S is an integral part of our annual sustainability reports.
OH & S performances are also reviewed every month at various committee meetings with internal stakeholders such as:
- Board Review
- Monthly Business Review
- Apex HSE Committee Review
- Committee Meetings Review
- Site Safety Committees Review
HSE updates are integral part of all periodic communications released from Chairman’s desk to all employees.
