best safety course in India is Regional Labour Institute's safety Diploma course in Guindy - Chennai - Tamil Nadu
a one year fulltime course whcih has to be sponsored by your organisation only, individuals cannot go, if you can get a sponsor from any organisation quite fine

dipilDear Mr. Partheeban M
As you are not an Engineering Graduate or Diploma Holder, I will suggest you to go for the same first... Safety Officer qualification is clearly defined in act and according to it engineering graduation or diplama is mandatory plus diploma in industrial safety from recognised institute by the State Government... Any other course like NEBOSH and all will be an addedd qualification... But on the basis of this you can't be work in any factories in India... if you planned for abroad go ahead with NEBOSH...
My advice, first you go for doing any Engg. courses, if you want to be in Safety Field...

Rashid815Dear Sakthi Sukumar,
As per my knowledge, the distance course in industrial safety from Annamalai University is not recognised by Government.
In Maharashtra, the one-year full-rime safety diploma (called "Advanced Diploma in Occupational Safety, Health and Environment") is conducted by the Maharashtra State Board of Technical Education (MSBTE), Mumbai.. Many people have the wrong impression that CLI and RLIs (Central Labour Institute in Mumbai and the Regional Labour Institutes at Kanpur, Chennai and Faridabad) award this diploma. CLI and RLIs are merely the institutes like many other private institutes in Mumbai and other places, which conduct this Diploma course. In all cases, the syllabus followed is that of MSBTE and the final exam is also conducted by MSBTE. In the case of RLIs, the exam is conducted by the concerned State Board of Technical Education.
The eligibility for admission to this Diploma course is as follows:
B.SC. in Physics/Chemistry/Agriculture/Horticulture/Life Sciences or its equivalent from a recognised University or a Degree/ Diploma in Engineering/Technology with 2 years' experience in manufacturing, maintenance or safety department of a factory OR two years" experience in a Research, Training, Education, Consultancy in Safety, OR two years" experience in enforcement of Legislation pertaining to safety. Similar criteria apply in other States also.
After doing this Diploma you become qualified to become a Safety Officer in industry. In fact, this Diploma is the essential qualification to work as Safety Officer in industry.
I hope this answers your query.
