Industrial safety management


The growing industrialisation of the country and increase in the magnitude, complexity and intensity of industrial hazards have made industrial safety a subject of potent concern. The human and material costs of industrial accidents and losses arising therefrom have been alarming during recent years. Managements are becoming more and more conscious of the preventive as well as curative aspects of industrial safety. Emphasis is increasingly being laid on the appointment of specially trained personnel to man the safety organisations in industrial establishments. The Factories Act, 1948 provides for the appointment of Safety Officers in specified categories of factories.
