IMPLEMENTATION OF SAFETY MANAGEMENT IN INDIAN INDUSTRIES : A CASE STUDY) by Sushil Kumar
The purpose of the study was to reduce or eliminate the accidents during production processes in “Shivalik Bimetal Controls Limited”. Which was on higher side and wasting lot of money of the organization, In general observation it is noticed that the company has been facing so many issues in their production (like; accidents, absenteeism, low production rate, improper handling) due to the lack of proper safety measures. The study uses Root Cause Problem Solving (RCPS) technique and starts with the collection phase, followed by the analysis phase and ends with the solution phase. Supporting data are presented using a Pareto Chart to highlight accidents in order to be more focused for elimination or reduction. The Q.C. tool is performed to analyse the cause of accidents, to express and implement corrective actions. The application of the Q.C tools in a manufacturing industry (Shivalik Bimetal Controls Limited) provides a fact-based and organised approach to the problem identification. Corrective action had enhanced the production and reduced the accidents from 35% to 12.6% which was the 70% of the total accidents and it helped to increase the productivity of the organization. The study was also proved that industrial safety training with sound understanding of manufacturing coupled with possible solutions using safety management tools. This corrective action was not only able to reduce accidents, but also upgraded the product quality.
