Speaking after the inauguration, BHEL Executive Director V Gopalakrishnan claimed the unit pioneered the concept of occupational health services (OHS) in India.

It started its OHS Centre about 30 years back before it became a statutory requirement. Today, it was the first in South India to win accreditation from Union Government to conduct post graduate course in industrial health for doctors working in hazardous units.
