Rapid technological development and large-scale mechanisation are posing complex problems about Safety and Health of the industrial Workers. Accident rate in India is very high and is disproportionate to the growth of industries. It also compares unfavourably with the performance in the advanced countries. Need of ensuring Safety and health at work, therefore, is an important area for managerial action. In this context, services of qualified safety professionals in the industry, to plan, implement and monitor accident prevention programmes, are essential.


Recognising this a new Section (Section 40-B) was introduced in the Factories Act 1948 with effect from 26th October 1976, which necessitates any factory employing 1000 or more workers or in which any process or operation is carried on, exposing any person employed in it, to serious risk of bodily injury, poisoning or disease, to employ, one or more safety officers. Already many state Governments and Union territories have framed Rules under Section 40-B of the Factories Act 1948, specifying the qualifications of Safety officers and their duties.  These rules are based on the model rules framed by the Directorate General Factory Advice Service and Labour Institutes, Government of India. As per these rules, for recruitment as Safety Officer, a person should possess a Diploma in industrial safety, recognised by the State Government as an essential qualification.


Anticipating the need of qualified Safety Officers, the REGIONAL LABOUR INSTITUTE KANPUR has been conducting, a one-year, recognised Post Diploma Course in industrial Safety since 1982, which conforms to the requirements as, envisaged in the Factories Rules.
