    Default JK Tyre receives recognition for its world-class manufacturing practices

    JK Tyre & Industries has received recognition and achieved a significant quality benchmark for its industry-leading manufacturing practices. The company successfully completed a best practice Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit conducted by the British Safety Council. JK Tyre’s four manufacturing facilities in Chennai, Mysore, Banmore and Laksar received the coveted certification by British Safety Council.

    The plant sites underwent a comprehensive, quantified and robust evaluation of its occupational health and safety policies, processes and practices. The audit process included documentation review, interviews with senior management, employees and other key stakeholders, together with sampling of operational activities.

    The audit measured performance against key health and safety management best practice indicators and a detailed review of over sixty component elements. JK Tyre was awarded a five-star rating following the audit which is reflective of a best-practice organisation.

    David Parr, Policy and Technical Services Director at the British Safety Council, said, “The award of a five-star grading following our occupational best practice Health and Safety Audit is an outstanding achievement and is reflective of a proactive organisation which is committed to continual improvement in its health and safety arrangements and managing risks to workers’ health, safety and welfare.”

    Commenting on the occasion, Mr Rajiv Prasad, President (India Operations), JK Tyre & Industries Ltd said, “This achievement is reflective of our unwavering commitment towards maintaining world-class manufacturing standards across all our facilities. The sought-after certification has further encouraged us to continue with our efforts in the direction of safe manufacturing.”

    About the Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit

    The Five Star Audit is a comprehensive, contemporary and quantified process which benchmarks health and safety management performance against the latest best practice techniques.

    The audit process is carried out through documentation review, management and other stakeholder interviews, as well as operational sampling.
    Those organisations who achieve a five-star grading following the audit become eligible to enter the British Safety Council Sword of Honour Awards which recognise excellence in the management of health and safety.

    The award scheme is an independently adjudicated process which requires five-star achievers to build upon the audit findings and provide a written submission on their continuous improvement planning.
