4 March 1966, the National Safety Council was established by the Ministry of Labour, Government of India (GOI) to sustain a voluntary movement on Health, Safety, And Environment (HSE) at the national level. It is an apex non-profit making, tripartite body that is registered under the Societies Registration Act 1860 and the Bombay Public Trust Act 1950.
CtrlS has always been a major contributor in innovating environment-friendly and energy-efficient processes at its datacenters. We have a firm grip hold to take care of the environment in every possible way along with keeping our workforce safe, who work relentlessly at our datacenters. We have an evolved Corporate Safety group divided into two teams- Project Safety and Operational Safety. These two teams work together with the leadership in building elaborate safety guidelines and stringent safety protocols. They ensure that the entire organization sticks to the specifications of the same.
Keeping the workplace safe and secure by taking appropriate safety measures is a task of great responsibility to reduce the rate of industrial accidents. In order to promote these practices at CtrlS, we hosted National Safety Week at all our DC sites- Mumbai, Hyderabad, Noida, and Bangalore. This year marked the 50th National Safety week, which was celebrated with all our workers, vendors, and other stakeholders. The celebration started on 4th March and lasted till 10th March.
