Dear all...
There is a huge gap between what OHSAS auditors expect (as per theoretical rules/requirements) and what can practically be done in a Factory setting.
I would like inputs from factory medical/safety officers who have faced such audits regarding how we can make documents and implement practicable measures for OSHAS requirements.
For example:
Health Check up for Canteen Workers in a Factory
Health Check up for contractual workers
Near miss reporting
Compliance to West Bengal Factory Rules - which are vague and mostly outdated.
Thanks.

You can done medical check up for contract labours and canteen labours through the medical officer appointed by Inspector of factories. Government medical officer also can do the medical checkup and provide the certificate.
You can mention near miss / first aid cases in the accident report itself.

Dear Dr. Abhinav,
Countless factories in India and many other countries have been certified for OHSAS 18001. When they can comply with the documentation requirements and the requirements of medical examination of workers (including canteen workers and contractors), etc., why can't your organization do it? You mention about near-miss reporting -- that is surprising! Whether certified for OHSAS 18001 or not, it (near-miss reporting and investigation) is very much required for a good occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system. All these things that you have mentioned and many more things are needed in normal OH&S management. I feel you need to appoint a qualified and experienced safety officer and also a good OH&S consultant who can guide you properly. Regarding the State Factories Rules, whether outdated or not, you are required to comply. Any legal requirement regarding OH&S and environmental protection is the bare minimum that must be followed. Good organizations go beyond that and do much more than what is required by law. The management should have a genuine commitment to health, safety and environment. If that is in place, you can develop a good OH&S management system. Please remember: Safety performance of an organisation is an absolutely reliable manifestation of the quality of management.

Thank you for your responses. Has anyone faced this problem where contractual workers are not directly cared for under the management, rather they are the responsibility of their Contractors and ESI?

Dear Dr Abhinav Atul
Generally in many companies contract workers do not get the same treatment as the permanent workers.
Sadly if a contractor worker is absorbed, seldom he shows the same commitment.
That has been the irony of the industry.
One thing that can be done is frequent education of contract labour on concepts like 'near miss', safety , fire fighting etc
Please find attached a simple "Near Miss" ppt

Dear VR
Very educative PPTS on Near Miss. Employees to be educated on this. Further who acts or reports/avoids near miss to be honoured graciously in public.
Thanks for posting.
