LEARN OSH BEST PRACTICES FOR CONTROLLING DEBILITATING INJURIES TO WORKERS AT OSH SOUTH INDIA 2018
OSH South India 2018 shall discuss the occupational safety and health concerns for the Indian industry at length during the OSH South India conference cum exhibition to be held during 28th – 29th June 2018 at HITEX, Hyderabad. The number of security incidents reported by industries makes one look at the implementation of OSH related laws with caution. In order to address these challenges it becomes imperative on the safety management to carry out regular safety audits and ensure that all measures for worker safety are adhered to without any compromise. In addition, the review of safety procedures, safety performance monitoring besides labour training on safe practices should be important constituents of company policy.
Ensuring that workplaces are safe is a huge responsibility for employers, particularly in hazardous industries. However, by putting simple checks and procedures in place, even the most problematic environments can be monitored safely.
All organisations are legally obliged to conduct regular health and safety risk assessments to identify any occupational hazards that might be present in the workplace and take steps to alleviate them. In this regard, they need to regularly undertake safety audits and plug loopholes that could be found as a result. The Pharma industry is one of the biggest industry verticals in Hyderabad. It is also the dealing with a lot of chemicals and active ingredients and therefore requires the utmost attention as far as worker safety and health is concerned. Most workers in India work with the deficient protective equipment and also do not take adequate precautions to safeguard their health.
