About CEHS


The Centre for Environment Health and Safety (CEHS) which has been set up under the aegis of Institute of Good Manufacturing Practices India (IGMPI) is registered as a non-profit society recognised by the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, accredited Vocational Institution of Ministry of HRD, Government of India. IGMPI is dedicated to promote working in a healthy and safe environment. The rapid expansion of infrastructure development and industrial establishments has heightened the focus on ensuring safety measures essential for public health. IGMPI is moving hand in hand with technology advances and has gained recognition as stronger and better training & online learning platform provider in the areas of Pharma GMP, Regulatory Affairs, Food Science, Health, Safety & Environment and many more. Today, India has had legislations on occupational safety and health for 50 years. But the number of regulatory personnel is limited to 1,400 safety officers, 1,154 factory inspectors, and 27 medical inspectors. These numbers are grossly inadequate even for the inspection of formal units that only employ about 10% of India's total workforce (around 26 million). This proves that there is a huge demand of industrial safety experts.

India is a fast-growing economy. It influences the global market as well. The CEHS team at IGMPI has come with programmes specially designed for industry professionals, graduates, and safety engineers to enhance their knowledge and get trained to have a great career in this upcoming and thriving field. Additionally, the Centre for Environment Health and Safety, IGMPI endeavours to enhance the skills of the available work force.
