Hello there, our company is a Software Development company based on Bangalore. We are planning to start night shift from 8.30 PM to 5.30 AM. I have few questions, kindly clear me.
1. What are the safety norms to be followed while operating night shifts?
2. In case of appointing girls in the night shift, what are the safety norms?
3. As our operations are in Bangalore, do we need to inform local police / do we need to get any proper approval for it?
Please clear me.

Please check the Shops and Establishment Act Registration. The organization must have been registered under software company working 24/7 . When you inform the security vendor about the shift change , please check with them as they would follow a standard proceudre of filling a form with details about the workforce and have procedures where they would inform certain Government official . Please do keep all the emergency number in the intranet and notice board , in full view to the employees.
