Small and medium scale industries (SMIs) are often the main pillar of an economy. In India the plastic processing industries are highly fragmented which about 75% are consist of micro, small and medium scale industries in plastic sector, in which about 15% has registered the packaging industry, which is one of the fastest growing industries in comparison with all industries. Less awareness, minor or major accidents, machineries which are old or semi-automatic and problem of ergonomics have created a need for implementation of workplace health and safety practices in these industries. Implementation towards healthy working condition plays an important role and creates positive impacts on economic and social development. Incident prevention tools like, incident investigation and pre job safety analysis can significantly reduce work place incident. In this study the cause of accident and how could prevent their occurrences were discusses. After implementing the strategies in the industry the safety supervision is also must to ensure a functioning occupational health and safety management system to protect human health and safety during working at workplace. Risk assessment as well as implementation towards product safety during manufacturing process is also discussed for rejection control or for enhancing the productivity. The data was obtained from different working area of the industry. The accurate information in questionnaires from the employees of the industry is collected, which took couple of weeks. After the collection of data it was analysed for further improvement. Two machines were analysed or monitored for comparing the new implemented strategies with the old or running one, for product safety during manufacturing process. The result shows that the safety culture among the workers in industry is increased and the risk of incident occurrence decreased. After the safety management system are inadequate in the industry, market competiveness, better efficiency, less risk were found to be most significant drivers and lack of awareness, financial constraints, resistant to change, lack of training are main barriers. The rejection control also seems in the production or increase in productivity seems, after implementation of new strategies towards process efficiency. The awareness towards the safety rules and policies increases which is also the main aim of this study. After implementing the new strategies in all phases of the industry, the risk decreased, decrease in rejection during process, all the employees and working parties seems to complies with safety procedure and rules and participate in all safety activities.
