One Month Certificate Course in Safety & Health for Supervisory Personnel Working In Hazardous Process Industries under section 41-C(b) of the Factories Act, 1948



Section 41C(b) of the Factories Act, 1948 provides that every occupier of a Factory involving Hazardous process shall appoint persons who possesses qualifications and experience in handling Hazardous Substances and are competent to supervise such handling within the factory and to provide at the working place all the necessary facilities for protecting the workers in the manner prescribed. Hence all supervisors of Hazardous processes factories must be trained to analyse the process hazards and implement the necessary risk mitigating methodology in terms of latest technique and current statutory requirements to overcome the challenges.

At present, there is a huge gap in equipping the supervisors on OSH and its of paramount importance that we train the supervisors adequately on OSH for effectively ensuring safety and health chain in hazardous processes. It is necessary that the supervisor is trained through a structured program on Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in hazardous processes.

In order to achieve this and to facilitate managements of Factories involving hazardous processes in complying with statutory provisions prescribed under 41C(b) of the Factories Act, 1948, International Institute of Industrial Safety Management (IIISM), Bengaluru under DGFASLI conducts this one month (four weeks) full time certificate course in Safety and Health.
