Bhopal gas tragedy was an eyeopener in the field of safety management in Indian industries. Developed countries has done considerable amount of research on managing safety at organisations, such research practices has not been observed extensively in India. Indian industries were forced to adopt better safety management after globalisation and economic reforms to stay competitive in international markets. Safety management concepts are still confusing to the leaders of industries. So it is extremely important to study various factors that influence safety management, especially in high-risk industries like chemical/process industry. JSW Energy is one of the earliest private entrants into the power sector positioned strongly as a full-spectrum integrated power company with a presence across the power sector value chain. With 4531 MW operational capacity, it remains one of the most efficient Power Company in the country. The present study is conducted at JSW Energy, Ratnagiri is 4 x 300 MW thermal power plant. The objective of the study is to critically analyse the safety management system present in JSWEL, a coal based power generation project and give feedback to the management towards improving health and safety management system. During the study the important sections of safety management system were studied through visual inspection, interviewing key personnels and collecting information from documented data of the company. A detailed report on key areas of safety management was made and listed below. The report follows a detailed description of the different safety management systems of the JSW Ratnagiri thermal power plant. This can be useful for different industries who are striving to establish a proper safety management system.
