There are very few social, industrial and commercial organisations that impart the fundamentals of the safety training in India. The types of safety training programs are just not limited to its industrial uses but also encompasses beyond it. Now as the hazards are even reaching the environment and health issues, it’s necessary to think about their protection as well. But there are very few numbers of programs and certificate courses dedicated to this particular subject.
Courses and Programs on Safety trainings
The two important training programmes of this category are the OSHA and NEBOSH. Firstly talking about the NEBOSH programme, which is originally an organization of British origin, is the most eminent course for the professionals of the safety and health. This program covers fundamentals of health and safety in the management strategy of a company with the assurance of qualified candidates taking appropriate steps in preventing accidents at the workplace. The ultimate aim of this programme is to bring up the people of a particular work space to appreciate the need of steps to be taken for ensuring a safe working environment.
The NEBOSH is designed with the main aim to make the supervisors, managers and the work representatives understand the practises and fundamentals of the subject. The best in the Asia of these programmes are available at both the NEBOSH Cochin and NEBOSH Chennai. Both of these will cover the basic content matters of policy, risk assessment, method statement etc. The main emphasis on the candidates of the NEBOSH Kerala and NEBOSH Cochin is given in making them understand the various types of hazards and its mitigation such as Fire Hazards and Control, Construction Activities Hazards and Control, Working safely at heights, Safety in confined spaces, Hot works and Permit to Work Systems, Work Equipment hazards & Control, Electrical hazards & control, Safe Movement of people and Vehicle at work Site, Manual & mechanical handling- Hazards & Control, Chemical & Biological health hazards & Control, Physical & Psychological Health hazards & Control, Emergency Evacuation & Incident management System etc
This way we make the candidates and organisation understand the nature of the problem pertaining to health and safety at work and also practically guide them on how to control it. We emphasis on the methods of recording, investigating, reviewing and auditing it.
Other than these two programmes there also is the OSHA programme and the Medic first aid training programme relating to the same subject for consideration.
