Nobody expects an emergency or crisis situation – especially one that affects them, their employees, and their business. Yet the plain truth is that emergencies and disasters can strike anyone, anytime, and anywhere. To prepare our employees for any emergency situation, an Evacuation Drill was performed last week with maximum available employees & nominated floor wardens. Employees were divided in to various groups – team wise and were allocated different places on floor. Evacuation was led by floor wardens. They were responsible to lead their assigned team throughout the evacuation and ensure the count (before/after evacuation) of their team members.

Prior to the Drill , a briefing session was conducted by the Compliance team to guide about drill purpose and to assign few responsibilities to the floor wardens .A general awareness session with employees was also conducted in which they were guided about HSSE Importance & also about HSSE Warden responsibilities.

From Compliance team, Fahid Ahmed, Adil Nisar Cheema & Sulemon Joseph managed this activity. Employees appreciated the efforts of the company towards the safety and wellbeing of employees.
