health, safety and environment

The safety of our workers has always been of paramount importance and a key priority for Engro Fertilizers. We work hard to provide a positive health and safety culture to our employees backed by processes and training so that health and safety is second nature to everyone. We remain committed to providing the safest working environment to our employees, particularly at manufacturing facilities while vigilantly fulfilling our environmental duties and responsibilities. Our consistently outstanding performance in maintaining the highest health and safety measures is a result of considerable investment in physical infrastructure, as well as creating an institutional architecture where health and safety are rigorously monitored at every level of the organizational hierarchy. We also aspire to raise the bar above globally acceptable standards every year. Engro Fertilizers also received “International Fertilizers Association’s “Best Progression Award” at Amman Jordan. In HSE governance, we had a great year with the transition of “IMS” & “Social Accountability” (SA-8000) to new standards & surveillance audit conducted without any major non-conformance.

In addition, all employees are trained and kept abreast of technological changes and safety-related aspects of their jobs.
