Dear Sirs, I have one query regarding the appointment of a safety officer. If an existing safety officer resigned and left the company. Is there any time limit either 90 days or 120 days or immediately to recruit a new safety officer. Kindly guide me on the subject matter.

Dear Venkateswarlu, Sec.40B(2) of the Factories Act,1947 leaves all the matters pertaining to Safety Officers to the concerned State Governments. Better refer to the State Rules.

Dear Dear Venkateswarlu,
Law (ie FA or Mine Act or BOCW Act and similar enactments on OSH including the new code says to employ such number of Safety Officers as may be specified and their duties, qualifications and conditions of service.
Nothing is in rules thereunder, to my knowledge on in what time limit you should fill up the vacancy of safety officer. In my view, you should not keep this appointment vacant for any time and fill it at the earliest possible time justifiable.
