Safety Healthy Environment
The pharmaceutical industry has been described as dynamic and growing, in terms of sales, number of employees, and GDP. It is an industry in which companies, government regulators, and researchers focus on the “safety” of the products and their effects on end users and the environment. Industrialization is required for the growth of a country, in the meantime lot of effluents, pollutants, and wastes are generated. So the manufacturing business needs to have a focus on Environment Health and Safety (EHS). It has become an industry norm and statutory requirement for the manufacturing industry to adhere to the laws and guidelines pertaining to EHS laid down by relevant regulatory bodies. More than anything else, EHS is critical to ensure safety and comply with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Along with safer and healthier employees, a strong EHS management system can work wonders in increasing the productivity of an organization as well
