Dear Ashok,

Warm welcome to our EHS family in citehr forum.

1.0 Policy Statement

Policy Statements also inform readers of specific design limitations and what actions to take should limitations be surpassed. For example, A storm hits a city and the amount of incoming wastewater surpasses the amount that can be treated by the wastewater system. Operators can then refer to a policy that states how much water can be treated in a given time and what course of action they should take.

2.0 Purpose

The reason for which something is done in industry/construction or created or for which something exists.

3.0 Scope

"The work that needs to be accomplished to deliver a high quality service, or result with the specified features and functions."

4.0 Glossary of Terms and Definitions

Part of the process of successfully deploying project management in your organization is to standardize the terminology. That way, when one person talks about risks, scope, issues, requirements, and other project management concerns, everyone else knows what he or she is referring to. This glossary contains common terms used in project management and can help start the standardization process.

5.0 Roles and Responsibilities

The project manager must ensure that roles and responsibilities are clearly defined. The organisational structure should be kept as simple as possible.
Project Roles and Responsibilities - a full description of project roles and responsibilities ... Defining and assigning roles is a major task for the project manager.

6.0 Procedure

An established or official way of doing something.

7.0 References

i.e, OSHA , Factory Act 1948 etc.,,

8.0 Appendices

If you have any attachment's in your plan you can show like Appendix- A, Appendix - B etc.,,,

Hope info helps. . .

There are lot of regulations for slaughetr houses.

These refer to ..

1. Food Safety (Slaughter house customers for human consumption)
2. Safety of the workmen working in slaughter houses.
3. Animal Abuse (The animals which come to slaughetr houses shouls not be abused)

Please google slaughter house safety you will get enough information.

In western countries these regulations are very strict.

Pl let me know if you need any further help.

Dear Sudhir Sir,
Nice to here from you once again..
I have already collected a lot of information from net (Thanks to Raghu Sir for that) related to animal abuse and food safety but unfortunately I could not get a single safety manual for such type of industry.
Actualy I have to prepare a safety manual for chicken slaughter industry and hence searching for some reference if available.

Once again Thanks & regards
