Environment, Occupational Health & Safety Plan (EHS)
In September 2008, Varroc launched a sustainable Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) strategy plan. EHS is an integral part of our core values. Our goal is to be injury-free, while being eco-friendly. We believe in ‘Reduce-Reuse-Recycle’. Various environmental projects like ZLD, waste utilisation and alternate usage of by-product etc. have been initiated to promote it. EHS focuses on the following key factors:
ETHICAL BUSINESS RESPONSIBILITYWe foster an inclusive environment that provides equal opportunity to our employees, customers, suppliers and the community at large. We comply with all applicable laws in every country in which we do business as well as with all applicable laws against discrimination and harassment, and laws prohibiting child and forced labour.

- Enhancing EHS skills through training and development
- Reducing environmental impacts and optimising the use of natural resources
- Preventing diseases by maintaining hygiene at work places
ENVIRONMENTAL, HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMSWe have implemented an integrated environmental, health and safety management system at all manufacturing plants globally that is consistent with the ISO 14001 Environmental and OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety Management Systems. This system is certified in compliance with these standards by a third-party registrar, Bureau Veritas. Key to the success of this program is establishing annual objectives and targets and implementing improvement programs to reduce safety risks and environmental aspects of our operations.
