Deccan Chronicle , Oct 12, 2017
Over 70 industries in the city, under the Major Accident Hazard (MHA) category, are not following the disaster mitigation guidelines, said Lt. General R. Bharadwaj, chairman of chemicals and industrial disaster management.
He made this observation at the conference on industrial disaster management, organised by FICCI and national disaster management authority. “The sheer enormity of a chemical accident and its irrevocable consequences for employees, stakeholders and neighbouring communities demands that every effort must be made to stop chemical disasters,” said Mr Ahmed Nadeem. commissioner, employment training and factories.
