Session1: Challenges in Implementing Laws and legislation Related to OSH in Construction Industry (panel discussion)
Discussion Points:
  • The working environment in India is more complicated as compared to industrialised nations, with laws and legislations varying with states and difficulties in monitoring their execution by all concerned.
  • The National Policy on Health, Safety and Environment at Workplace is yet to be seriously implemented.
  • The purpose of legislation is to extend OSH coverage to all industrial sectors within India, spread awareness on OSH among key stakeholders, and also to include occupational health as part of primary healthcare programs.
  • Efforts need to be accelerated to improve data collection and statistics on occupational health and safety incidents and also to create a safe and health environment through defined rights, duties and responsibilities to all concerned and by prioritising prevention of such incidents in future.

Session 7: How Implementing the Right OSH Strategy Benefits Organisations (panel discussion)
Discussion Points:
  • Most owners consider health and safety to be primarily the responsibility of the employees themselves and unfortunately without access to any kind of formal training on OSH, the overall awareness levels in this sector are low. No wonder a very high incidence of chronic health problems amongst workers is reported from India.
  • It is imperative upon all key stakeholders to effectively communicate the cost-benefit ratio of adopting best practices in OSH to various industries.
  • Some of the factors that can motivate organizations to invest in OSH best practices are: increase in productivity through availability of a healthy workforce; reputation enhancement; adherence to local laws and regulations and hence avoidance of punitive action from government bodies; and increased customer satisfaction.
