Our History

SAMA came into being in the year 1969 mainly to look after the interest of safety appliances manufacturers. It was founded by Late Joseph Leslie Vas, Late Francis Leslie Vas, Late M.D. Shroff, Late Fida Hussain Makati, Late Gulabchand P. Jauhari, and more.

In 1969, There were about thirty small-scale safety appliance manufacturing companies spread out all across the country. Safety, being a small, unorganized and unrecognized sector at that time, was not able to meet the demands of the market. The majority of these companies were situated in Mumbai and Kolkata. With the coming up of new large-scale industries of Steel, Fertilizers, Chemicals, Dyestuff, etc in the western region of India, demand for safety appliances started to rise.

Safety appliance manufacturers worked hard to gain knowledge of hazards in different working conditions in various industries and started to produce equipment that ensured the protection of the industrial worker. Looking at the growth of the industry, the need for an association was felt.  Thus SAMA was born and today it has become a very well-established association with a strong membership base.

Right from the inception, the association had loyal and selfless workers, who have placed considerable effort to ensure consistent growth of the safety industry in India.

In its initial period of growth, the association received considerable information and assistance from the National Safety Council, Central Labour Institute, and the Council of Industrial Safety. They gave immense support & direction so that the safety appliances manufacturing industry could prosper.

SAMA has gained momentum now. Association is now working very closely with BIS to upgrade & form new BIS standards for various safety appliances. Association is also working closely with the central government to set up safety standards for workers in India across industries.
