Gas leaks in India & Value of preventive safety measures

“If you want the present to be different from the past, study the past.”

Need for learning

Learning is the process that improves the potential of a person or company that is achieved in different modes. Out of all these modes, the two efficient ways of learning are performed by proper training and by past experiences. It could be applicable to any individual person to giant organisations.Industries which retreat from this habit should encounter the unavoidable failures even though sincere efforts are implemented for growth. The recent research reports of safety failures especially gas leaks from various industries across India indicates the negligence of this fact.




The recent gas leaks in India

  • 475 school students along with 9 teachers were hospitalized due to leakage of poisonous gas Chloro (methyl) diphensylsilance from a container depot in Tughlaqabad in Delhi.
  • 25 people were affected by leakage of Chlorine gas from a water treatment plant in Hassan District in Karnataka State.
  • 8 people suffered serious injuries by the explosion of Ammonia gas chamber in Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh State.
  • 10 people admitted in hospital due to Ammonia gas leaks from a barge in Champakkara, near Kochi.
  • 6 people suffered from asphyxiation due to gas leakage from a blast furnace of the plant in Rourkela in Odisha State.

What experts to say

The prominent Experts in India stresses the factor that the industries are not learnt any lesson from the well-known Bhopal gas tragedy which happened in Union Carbide India Ltd (UCIL) in 1984 due to the leakage of methyl Isocyanates (MIC).The analysis of this incident reveals that the reasons for this tragedy were poor maintenance of the plant, lack of effective safety systems in the plant and negligence in safety management.

The experts also say that the workers are not trained effectively to use the safety devices at the time of emergency and to overcome this issue, they suggest, managements has to take steps to conduct safety training programmes periodically.Eventhough 32 years moved on form Bhopal incident, we encounter the issue of gas leaks all over India at everytime.This is the outcome of not giving the importance to study the past incidents and not implementing the appropriate preventive measures on time.

Lessons to be learnt

“Prevention is better than cure”

  • Industries must implement safety management systems as per standards.
  • Workers must be educated about the safety measures and to use the safety devices effectively.
  • Safety awareness programs and prevention methods in specific to the industry’s manufacturing should be conducted including the authorities concerned and to the public around the industry.
  • Refresher safety training should be given to safety professionals repeatedly as researches argue that after 12 months only 50% of knowledge remains in the memory of the candidates after training.

Role of Safety Institutes

Safety oriented organizations learn from accidents by analyzing the data collected immediately after the incidents and revise the policies and procedures to be implemented in the future. The Training institutes has the challenge to  produce safety  professionals who knows the systematic approach to analyze the incidents thoroughly and capability to provide  recommendations to reconsider the policies based on safety concerns. Ultimately, Aristotle says that

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”

NIST is the leading safety institute in India has the commitment to produce safety professionals with analytical skills in line with our mission of contributing to the safety to the world and providing safety training to the workers and executives to attain the accident- free world.

It’s time for Quality Training

In the modern world, technology is enhancing in all corners in a day to day basis. To say, the development goes to the extent of sending satellites to the mars, finding new subatomic particle, BOSON, in quantum physics, discovering new planets, i.e., 7 planets around a star in 40 light years away from us and the list goes on. In our very life, the new inventions ease our living in many ways like building Artificial human organs, achieving 3D printing, finding Nanobots used to remove Toxins, Gorilla glasses for hi-teach gadgets, Power mat for charging gadgets without electricity. Particularly, many devices are invented for safety purposes both for typical usage like Safelets & Revolar, i.e., to wear on hand, for women safety and for industrial usage ranging from Modern Gas Detector, Face Protectors and Gloves.




Inspite of the fact, the technology is growing in supersonic pace in all the sectors to make human life better and better, the safety and value of human life is still being the unanswered question. The recent incidents and surveys indicate that our mankind, especially workers in the various industries is at high risk at all time. The Ministry of Statistics and Programme implementation in India says that the fire accidents cost around 20,000 victim’s life in every year. To add up, over 40% of fire accidents happen due to failure of electric circuits that causes threat to safety of people and to the property including expensive equipments.

All the time, Fire safety audit is the effective tool to assess the fire safety status in industries, laboratories, IT parks, offices, hotels, malls, hospitals, educational institutions and helps to identify the domains for improvement in fire prevention, protection and emergency preparedness. Eventhough it is mandatory for conducting fire safety audit, the failures in the safety concerns and costing human lives raise many questions in everyone’s mind.

Why fire accidents are being frequent in industries?

Are the safety professionals not competent or irresponsible or not trained properly?

Would the safety course providers really committed to produce quality professionals?

In order to answer these questions, the thorough analysis is needed to identify the root cause for these incidents. The astonishing fact is, there is lack of properly trained and qualified safety professionals contributed to the society to handle the safety equipments effectively as well as to apply the safety methods and preventive measures precisely. So that, the failures in safety audit and improper guidance of prevention measures leads to accidents in the industry. To add up more, few safety course providers not committed to produce qualified safety professionals. Free safety courses are offered to the candidates along with other major courses that suppresses the significance and necessity of safety concerns.  Some safety institutes are providing poor training to the candidates for lower prices.

On account of all these facts, the necessity to identify the genuine, aristocratic safety course providers in the market emerges. The professionals, who have certified from the prestigious training institutes, are successfully carrying out their safety profession contributing to the safety of the workers and companies at their best. The recognition of deserving safety course providers by the society, will pave the way to generate qualified safety professionals and save the valuable life of workers and property of the industry too by facilitating safety measures in efficient form.

Have NIST training; be brave to go anywhere; it saves all.

World Telecommunication and Information Society Day – 17 May 2017

                    “Only through communication can human life holds meaning”

World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD-17) is celebrated by ITU on May 17 every year. ITU, International Telecommunication Union, is the United Nation’s specialized agency for Information and Communication Technology (ICT). This is the day which spots the inauguration of ITU in 1895 with the mission of achieving best practical solutions for integrating new technologies when they are developed, and for spreading their benefits to all the spheres. The purpose of celebrating WTISD-17 is also to raise the awareness of the use of internet and other information and communication technologies (ICT) to help societies and economy of a nation and also to balance the digital divide among mankind.


                                 2017 Theme: Big Data for Big Impact

The theme, “Big Data for Big Impact” is chosen for the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD-17), that focuses to explore the power of big data for development and to identify the opportunities by converting the available massive complex data into practicable information.

This theme matches with the ITU’s objectives focusing on the technological developments that are smoothing the emergence of Big Data, developing standards related to Big Data and identifying sources and uses of Big Data. It also includes the use of Big Data technologies for developing and monitoring improvements in information societies. To accomplish these objectives of ITU, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) provide the innovative ways, as part of it’s work, to manage major cities in the form of constructing smart buildings, intelligent traffic systems, energy conservation, e-waste management and exchanging information and knowledge among the converging information societies.

                                                              Safety Concerns

All in good time, the technological developments come along with the challenges like the safety of workers, security of data, managing and accounting of large data, and etc. Specifically, in Telecommunication Engineering, employees working on the cell phone tower encounter the risks such as RF burn, i.e., causes irritation in skin due to RF radiation that is one form of Electromagnetic Energy emitted by transmitting Antennas, and risk at working at top approximately 500 or 600 feet tall, falling objects or tools from the top onto the body, electrical hazards, and working at inclement weather. To overcome these shortcomings, Safety precaution measures have to be insisted to the workers and corresponding researches must be encouraged to reduce the effects by the concerned authorities at this point of time.

Last but not the least, Occupational Stress is the major health issue experienced by the employees of information systems that may lead to, sometimes, metabolic syndrome to the workers. The pre-emptive methods are to be implemented to rectify this issue by giving attention on efficient time management, task management, regular workouts and by proper food choices.

World Heritage Day

world heritage day

India is celebrated for historical places and heritage building. We have also the privilege to hold one of the world wonders “Taj Mahal” under our country’s banner. There are many such monuments, religious buildings, museums, forts, palace and so forth are available in each and every state across our nation. This would attract tourists from various part of the globe which would increase the economy of our country.

In most of the countries ancient building are protected, maintained and polished as it is considered as tribute to the ancestors who built those structures before the advancement of technologies. The saddening part of our culture is we not only failed to protect the heritage structures but also mishandled the legacies our dynasties left behind.

It is also encouraging to learn that 18th April is declared as ‘World Heritage day’ by International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) which was approved by UNESCO in 1983. The purpose of this day is to create awareness among the people to know their collective responsibility to protect the nation’s inheritance.

The effort taken care by archeological department and various states across the country to safeguard the identifications of the ancient buildings are commendable. Their main aim is to refurbish the ancient model buildings which are either vulnerable or iconic. Still we have lot more to do with the memorials as quoted very often in various newspapers, NGO’s and social advocates.

In the era of high end machineries, latest technologies, revolutionary accessibility and numerous sponsorships across the globe, the renovation and maintenance of building is still challenging. Councils, professional forums, NGO’s, CSR funds are increased due to the awareness campaign from ICOMOS and other organisations. We are grateful to those initiatives which helps next generation to understand, witness and cherish the history and the efforts taken.

Engineering specializations like architectural, interior designing and HSE courses are available for the persons who wish to take part in construction, restoring and protecting the historical buildings. Besides engineering, Safety courses plays a major role to protect the people working to protect the monuments and heritage. Learn more
