Tristar has an HSE committee which is chaired by the Group CEO. The committee members are personnel from HR, HSE, Transport, Workshop, Warehouse, Shipping, as well as drivers’ representatives. The committee meets every month and has the responsibility to review HSE performance and taking necessary measures to ensure continuous improvement.
Near Miss Reporting
Near Miss Reporting provides useful information and helps to minimize exposure loss and in certain cases prevent occurrence of any incident by taking remedial actions on time. In Tristar there is a comprehensive system for near miss reporting and handling. Employees are encouraged to report any unsafe condition at the workplace. There is a sub-HSE committee which will analyze these near miss reports for closure, trend analysis and converting them into HSE tips. We have also fixed near miss boxes at various locations in our workplace where employees can drop near miss report forms.
Tristar drivers are provided with HSE Passports which contain emergency contact numbers, precautions to take in case of emergency situations, procedures for loading / unloading, bulk deliveries, handling hazardous products, defensive driving techniques, regulations for work at terminals and hazardous material warning labels. HSE passports also carry information on driver merits like training details, toolbox meetings, etc. and demerits like traffic violations, accident details, etc.
Quarterly Safety Meeting
There is a safety meeting conducted every quarter and is attended by all employees, including drivers. Customers are also invited to participate in these quarterly meetings. Refresher on various safety and driving aspects along with learning from incidents are shared. Appreciation certificates and awards are also given to individuals based on their safety performance during the quarter.
Stop Work Authority
Immediately stop all unsafe work practices and activities that put the environment in peril or activities that threaten the health of the workforce by using the Stop Work Authority. The Stop Work Card is issued to all Tristar employees. A log is also maintained at each Tristar location for recording the invocation for stop work authority.
