Safety Organization

Each industry must have a safety organisation along with well defined objective and well identified functions. It has been experienced that safety policies frequently fail if safety functions are distributed or made part of activities of various departments. Under the system of distributed responsibilities the safety functions have frequently been reported to corporate managers through personnel and human resource department, operational office or legal office. Such type of practices had often obliterated the successful implementation of safety programmes. Safety functions turn successful if they are controlled by a single department with safety personnel interacting along with other activities functionally. A top level corporate manager has to be supervise safety organisation in a large industry.

Safety director or manager at industry level might report to corporate manager. There may be various managers reporting to safety director who would look after special safety functions such as fire, environment, occupational health, claim for compensation etc. These managers will essentially interact with all other departments wherever workers are involved. A safety person should not be a narrow specialist but a broad based expert along with human values as main plank. Teamwork and cooperation with others are another attributes needed for a successful safety person.
