Advanced Training, Inspiring Change
The EHS+ Center provides customized environment, health, safety, and energy training and assistance to factory workers and managers on-site and in the classroom throughout India. Our goal is to help factories become safe, healthy, and green places by inculcating that contribute both to the well-being of their workers as well as India’s growing economy.
We have a wide selection of cost-effective courses and programs that can help those in the textile, construction, automotive, and
chemicals/pharmaceuticals sectors save money through safety and efficiencies and be a good citizen by supporting key Indian initiatives such as Make in India and Clean India Mission.
Launched in 2015, India’s first EHS+ Center was started by the U.S.-based international NGO Institute for Sustainable Communities and its academic institutional partner Symbiosis Institute for International Business (SIIB).
It is exciting for SIIB to be involved in developing a program that is so relevant to the industry and to business environment. The EHS domain, as a significant component of major industry sectors, requires capacity building.
