Upon completion of an extensive occupational health and safety evaluation, Chemicals Business of Uflex – a leading supplier of inks, adhesives and speciality coatings, successfully migrates to ISO 45001:2018. ISO 45001 is structurally an integration of other ISO Management Systems standards including ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 attained by the business earlier.

Chemicals Business of Uflex was already certified with BS OHSAS 18001:2007 certification and has now migrated to ISO 45001:2018. This certification further illustrates the commitment of Chemicals Business to continual growth, improving the health and safety of its employees, reducing occupational hazards and ensuring the best quality work life.

The assessment of the Risk Management ISO 45001:2018 was carried out by DNV¬-GL. ISO 45001 is a new international standard for the occupational health and safety (OH&S) of companies’ management systems. The standard has more detailed clauses lining out its expectations of employee involvement, documentation of results and program effectiveness, risk evaluation and considering how safety impacts all stake holders including employees, contractors, outsourced operations, vendors, and much more.

This standard also provides the specification for formal, systematic analysis and management of risk, management of regulatory compliance, promotion of safe work practices, and evaluation of occupational health and safety performance. A systematic approach facilitates a reduction in the number of incidents and eventually fewer disruptions to business.

On the certification, Rajesh Bhasin, joint president, Chemicals Business at Uflex said, “It is our prime responsibility to continuously improve health and safety standards in our plants and workplaces that allows our employees to stay healthy, safe and productive. ISO 45001:2018 will help our business to achieve the intended outcomes of its OH&S management.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
