AERB Safety Award Schemes
Ministry/Department/Organisation: Atomic Energy Regulatory Board
Detail: AERB has instituted three Annual safety award schemes. These are Industrial Safety Award, Green Site Award and Fire Safety Award.
  • The Industrial safety award scheme: The Industrial safety award scheme, started in the year 1992, promotes industrial safety among various units of DAE. The safety performance is assessed based on computed value of Safety Numbers as per a pre-defined computational methodology. The unit having highest Safety Numbers is awarded in their respective group and the unit which had any fatality in a year is debarred from participating for Industrial Safety Award. Data are collected in standard formats every year from all the units for assessment of Safety Numbers. 
  • The Fire Safety Award Scheme :The Fire Safety Award Scheme was started in 1993 in order to promote fire safety among various units of DAE. The safety performance is assessed based on computed value of Preventive Efforts and Fire Hazard Index (PEFHI) as per a pre-defined computational procedure. The unit having maximum PEFHI is awarded the Fire Safety Award. Data are collected in standard fire safety award data format every year from all the units for assessment of PEFHI.
  •  The Green Site Award Scheme The Green Site Award Scheme was instituted in 1993 to promote tree plantation among various units of DAE to ensure that the atmosphere around the plant is clean and better to live in. The performance is assessed based on computed value of Greenery (Gx) as per a pre-defined computational procedure. The unit having maximum value of Gx is awarded the Green Site Award. When two or more units have equal value of Gx, the award is given to the unit having maximum value of Tx (Efforts made for Green site). Data are collected in standard green site award data format every year from all the units for assessment of green site award parameters.
