Safety emphasis in manufacturing organizations is given prior importance compared to traditional manufacturing practices. This paper discusses about safety practice index calculation using multi grade fuzzy approach. A conceptual model has been developed for calculation of safety index. Usage of Fuzzy logic gives a unique advantage of being compatible and having a clear quantitative computation avoiding bias. Factors which affect the safety level of an organization is identified. Major impacting factors include organizational commitment and information integration. Usage of computational techniques in manufacturing organization makes information available to every employee in organization transparently. Research scope is limited to current manufacturing standards which are on practice and addition of variables can be done accordingly to change in practice standards. A case study test is computed to a manufacturing organization to ensure the effectiveness of the formulation. It revealed most important factor in driving safety level of organization is their auditing procedures. Improvement actions for the organization under study are also proposed. Although there is adequate facilities available to enhance safety practice in manufacturing organization, implementation of safety practices is most important and difficult process.
