Environmental and Health Risk Management Plan

Serum - Protection from birth onwards

Environmental Impact and risk mitigation:

Risks Project Specific Risk Potential Impact Mitigation Steps
Air Pollution
  1. Briquette Boiler Emissions
  2. FO Boiler Emissions
  3. DG sets Emissions
Emissions of dust, SOx and NOx
  1. Bag filters/Cyclone separator is provided for Boiler to control the dust emission.
  2. Switched over to environmental friendly fuel – i.e. Furnace Oil is replaced with CNG for few boilers to reduce the pollution load (i.e. SOx and NOx.)
  3. Stacks height provided is as per guidelines.
  4. Regular Monitoring of all stacks through MoEF and CC approved laboratory and records maintained.
Water Pollution and Waste water treatment
  1. Process washings, Utilities wastewater
  2. Domestic Wastewater
  3. Waste water from
  4. Animal House.
  5. Other
Water pollution
  1. Containment is provided to waste water tanks and pit to avoid the spreading of waste water.
  2. Provision of Effluent treatment plant -consisting - Equalization tanks followed by Primary, secondary and tertiary treatment system.
  3. Minimum 60 % of treated effluent is being recycled in plant and rest of effluent disposed of into local drainage.
  4. SOP's are in place for monitoring the operations of ETP plant.
Chemical waste
  1. Off specification chemicals
  2. Date expired chemicals
  3. Rejected raw materials, solvents
  4. and lab chemicals
Contamination of water or soil and health risk Segregation, collectionof waste as per the Hazardous waste Rule 2016. Disposal of chemical waste through Common Hazardous Waste Treatment storage Disposal facility. (CHWTSDF) – Approved by statutory authority).
Biological Waste All types microbiological wastes, OHC wastes Health risk
  1. Segregation, collection, secured storage of Biological waste as per the Bio-medical waste management Rule 2016.
  2. Bio-Medical waste Incinerator plant provided as per the CPCB guidelines for the treatment of waste.
  3. Incinerator ash is disposed of to CHWTSDF.
  4. SOP is in place for operation of Incinerator plant.
Hazardous waste
  1. ETP Sludge
  2. Waste oil
  3. Incinerator ash
Contamination of water or soil Hazardous waste is disposed through Common Hazardous Waste Treatment Storage Disposal Facility (CHWTSDF).
Destruction/alteration of surrounding ecosystem Specific Project implementation aspects will not cause any adverse ecological effects Not likely All Lab practices will be as per standards

Occupational Health and Safety and risk mitigation:

Risks Project Specific Risk Potential Impact Mitigation Steps
Heat Hazards Burns Injuries
  1. Insulation is provided to hot surfaces to avoid the contact.
  2. Personal Protective Equipment/s are provided to those employees who are working in such environment.
  3. Precautionary Signage's are displayed.
Chemical hazards, including fire and explosions Fire Injuries, property loss
  1. Trained persons are available in each shift to tackle the emergency.
  2. Fire hydrant system is provided to extinguish the fire.
  3. Fire detection and Alarm system is provided for early detection of fire.
  4. Public Address system is provided for communication in during emergency.
  5. Fire extinguishers are provided to extinguish the fire.
  6. Fire tender is available to extinguish the fire.
Pathogenic and biological hazards Exposure to Pathogens Health Risk
  1. Bio safety cabinets provided to avoid the exposure.
  2. Controlled working environment with HEPA filter to avoid the contamination and usage of disinfectants.
  3. Immunization of concerned personnel to avoid the health risk.
  4. Access control system is provided to avoid unauthorised entry.
Noise High noise Hearing loss
  1. Acoustic enclosures, silencers are provided to high noise equipment to control the noise within permissible limit.
  2. PPE's like Ear plugs/muffs provided to worker to avoid the high noise exposure.
  3. Audiometric testing of employees during annual medical check-up to observe the noise impact on health.
  4. Regular Noise Monitoring through MoEF and CC approved laboratory to check the noise level.
  5. Equipment Maintenance schedule is in place to avoid the excess noise.
Process safety Engineering and Equipment maintenance shall be undertaken as per SOPs Health Risk Process risk assessment and engineering controls are provided to avoid the impact on health of employees.

Community Health and Safety and risk mitigation:

Risks Project Specific Risk Potential Impact Mitigation Steps
Safety Transportation Management System (for transport of hazardous material) Fuels, lab chemicals and reagents, raw materials Spills Transportation of hazardous waste is done only by RTA approved vehicles.
Emergency preparedness and participation of local authorities Low hazard facility Low hazard facility
  1. Onsite emergency plan in place to tackle the emergency situation.
  2. Regular mock drills are conducted to check the employee's response and preparedness during the emergency.
