Annamalai University not eligible as per Factory Act. RLI or CLI and State Board of Technical Education and Training courses or eligible for register for Safety Officer.
61---. (1) Qualification- (a) A person shall not be eligible for appointment as Safety Officer unless he :
(i) Possesses a recognised degree in any branch of engineering or technology and has had practical experience of working in factory in a supervisory capacity for a period of not less than 2 years; or a recognized degree in physics or chemistry and has had practical experience of working in a factory in a supervisory capacity for a period of not less than 5 years; or a recognised diploma in any branch of engineering or technology and has had practical experience of working in a factory in a supervisory capacity for a period of not less than 5 years.

Dear 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.

Best wishes.

Dear AKG ji,
As per your reply the course is in that mentioned 4 places only. Many of the Pvt institution are providing since its not recognized by University, But Annamalai University is a Government University of Tamilnadu that is i have doubt whether distance mode is not eligible or University should be approved by UGC. And please send me the Legal point what says about the qualification of the Safety Officer appointment.
