  • Inclusion of HIRA and DM topics should be included in school and college curriculum.
  • All the DM activities should be put under one umbrella for execution as expected by recently published guidelines of NDMA
  • Directives to state government department to create sufficient posts and deploy staff on all posts should be given so as to strengthen infrastructure and the DISH administration must have a post for a chemical expert.
  • Introduction of a national policy on risk management and risk reduction at par with GHG emission or climate change
  • Integrate the industrial risk with the national planning process
  • Prepare a vision document. Prescribe a time frame for implementation
  • Establish an autonomous research and development programme centre with international accreditation for dissemination of credible information on process safety.
  • Capacity building measures and support to implementing agencies

The vital role of training institutions such as the National Civil defence College (NCDC), for providing training on different aspects and to different target audiences has been recognised.

Indicators to measure success/impact
  • Training material on HIRA like presentations, reading material, task sheets for group work etc. have been produced
