I am attaching a chart containing provisions relating to appointment of Safety Officer as per Factories Act and also for Electrical Safety Officer as per regulations under Electricity Act 2003. Applicability is as under:
a) Factories Act : 1,000 or more workers
b) CEA Safety Regulations 2010 : Factory with >250 kW electrical load connected
c) CEA Regulations 2011 : >500 employees (including contract workers)
While required qualifications in (a) and (c) above is same, in case of (b) electrical engineering degree holder with min.5 years experience is required. It means Safety Officer appointed under Factories Act cannot work as Electrical Safety Officer under 2010 regulations. Pl confirm whether my understanding is correct.
