Chemical Factories in Gujarat
  • Gujarat is the only state in India where D.I.S.H. has classified and identified chemical factories (which are not M.A.H.) in Class A, B, & C, considering their hazard potential. All MAH factories are inspected by concerned inspector, Regional Head, Joint Director, Industrial Safety & Health and Asst. Director, Industrial Safety & Health (Chemical) once in a year. i.e. MAH unit is inspected three times in a year. The other hazardous units are also inspected minimum once in a year by local factory inspector.
