The Factories Act stipulates requirements for ensuring safety in industry. The revised and updated provisions of the Act obligate the employment in industry of full-time Safety Officers who should be adequately qualified as such. The aim of the course in Industrial Safety Engineering is to train personnel who already possess a first degree in engineering by providing them the scientific know-how and orientation in theory and practice in the area of safety, health and hygiene to make them fit into managerial positions. The course is specially suited to sponsored personnel from industry.
