Safety India 2015, the three-day conference on occupational safety and health, will be held in Mumbai between 15th and 17th October.
Occupational safety and health is imperative for all organisations irrespective of the industry as workplace accidents not only cause damage to the health and lives of the employees but also hamper the productivity and reputation of the organisation. Bringing this critical aspect into mainstream discussion, Safety India 2015, will enable detailed discussions on important topics like understanding human error, OSH management and emerging trends in 2015, injury prevention through visualising the hazard analysis and risk control, updates on ISO 45001 standard on safety management systems and its implications, gold standard for risk management – ISO 31000ILO, sustainable safety management, significance of incidence reporting, and methodology for incident investigation.
The two-day professional development conference and exposition by the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) will be organised on 15th and 16th October followed by one-day workshop on CSP/ASP professional certifications. This event will attract safety practitioners from a wide variety of industries including manufacturing, construction, oil and gas, automotive, IT, biotechnology and many others.
“Safety India 2015 brings together the best minds in the industry globally who will share their expertise. Safety India 2015 will be the benchmark for all conferences to follow,” said Michael Belcher, President – ASSE.
The conference will be inaugurated by Minister of state for science and technology and for earth sciences Dr YS Chowdary. Safety India 2015 is expected to attract hundreds of participants and numerous exhibitors from India, Asia, North America and Europe.
