Bloom january2014

  1. 1. Vol. 4 Issue 1 January 2014 Editorial We've stepped into 2014 and I'm sure each one of us would have made new resolutions, some to keep and some to break, including some in our respective fields of work. The New Year was welcomed differently in different parts of the world - North America and UK witnessed peculiar natural phenomena at the beginning of the year. While the Polar Vortex is making parts of North America compete with Mars, recording lowest temperatures in centuries, across the Atlantic 30 ft. odd waves have been battering the coasts of UK. However, back home it was a moment to cheer with India emerging as a key space capable nation with only three others to give us company. We also saw an interesting 'first of a kind' political development with the emergence of a new political party and a new Chief Minister for the capital state. 2014 is destined to bring even greater change in the political ecosystem of the country with General Elections unfolding in a few months’ time. Hope 2014 brings with it a more economically successful and vibrant year than the year gone by. Come January and we gear up to participate in the most awaited event of the year - The Foundation Day. This year the 148th Foundation Day will be celebrated across locations on 2nd February 2014. Our hearts are filled with immense pride and joy as this day reminds us of our great heritage and the fact that our Company has stood the test of time, and emerged as a leading business house of the country. Preparations have begun at all locations in full swing and we are confident of enjoying a fun filled show with our colleagues and families. As always please do not hesitate to send your feedback, suggestions and contributions to me at mukhopadhyay.mohar@balmerlawrie.com. Bloom wishes you and your families a very happy, prosperous and healthy 2014! Mohar Top Management Meet

In photo is a glimpse of a budget meeting being held in the Conference Room of the New Administrative Building of G&L – Silvassa. This was the first meeting held in this new conference room.

It was a good platform for the duo to interact with HR professionals from the industry, and they were grateful for the opportunity given to them. HSE (Health, Safety & Environment) Corner CHEMICAL HYGIENE & ITS RISK CATEGORIZATION: Many chemicals are routinely handled in the laboratory. The hazardous nature of a chemical depends not only on what it is, but also on how it is handled. In determining the hazardous nature of a chemical, please consider the characteristics of the chemical. Most chemicals fall into one of four categories: IGNITABLE - a chemical with a flashpoint of less than 140°F CORROSIVE - a chemical with pH less than 2 or greater than 12.5 (i.e. strong acid and bases) REACTIVE - a chemical that is explosive, shock sensitive, reacts to produce heat, light or toxic products or combines violently with air or water TOXIC - a chemical that has an adverse effect on organisms in relatively low doses or small quantities The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) system utilizes a diamond diagram, divided into four color coded sections: 1. Blue for health hazard 2. Red for fire hazard 3. Yellow for reactivity hazard 4. White for other hazard information Within each section, a number ranks the degree of hazard: 4 means extreme hazard; 3 means serious hazard; 2 means moderate hazard; 1 means slight hazard; 0 means no or minimal hazard; The white section alerts the user to special hazards the material may possess, such as: water reactivity; strong oxidizer Ox; corrosivity; radioactivity; Poison. Example:
