Safety First – NMDC Limited
NMDC contributed towards society and people living around the project and nation-building by providing the required support to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuring an uninterrupted supply of basic raw material required to make steel.
Covid brought a lot of problems with itself. On one side, there was a risk to the health and safety of employees and people in the project vicinity. On the other hand, there was a risk of a performance decline for the company.
NMDC created awareness in and around the project, distributed 50,000 units of relief packages consisting of food grains and other essential items, in villages around the mines it supported people who lost their livelihood in COVID and arranged vaccination drives. NMDC also helped local and district hospitals through financial support and procurement, supply of oxygen cylinders, and installation of oxygen plants.
The initiatives helped the firm to build a cohesive environment around its mines and amongst its employees by limiting the spread of COVID. The efforts helped the company to achieve a jump of 31% and 73% in revenue and PAT respectively in FY21 which is the best ever performance for NMDC.
There were challenges related to infrastructure and supply due to sudden disruption in logistics, supply of labour, and manpower even for medical facilities.
To encourage Covid appropriate behaviour and early vaccination, NMDC extensively used social media to generate awareness in innovative ways.
As the project was initiated for safety against covid, NMDC is well prepared for any new waves of Covid and it can replicate all the measures taken.
NMDC not only secured the health and safety of its employees but also of the people living around the project.
