Leadership's Role in Ensuring OSH Sustainability at Workplaces @ OSH South India 2022

Informa Markets in India has a dedicated show to spread awareness on Occupational Safety & Health for South Indian industry-OSH South India. The 7th edition of OSH South India is slated to be held in Chennai Trade Centre from 17-18 June, 2022.
The show is the South Indian version of the immensely popular OSH India, South Asias largest safety & health expo and conference, organized in Mumbai since 2012. The exhibition brings together more than 6000 national and international industry professionals across construction, manufacturing, PPE and other key industry domains.
Going forward in the ‘new normal’ it is imperative on an organisation 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.
Health and safety professionals across industry verticals have recognised the importance of tackling health issues and not just concentrating on safety. In numerous conversations with workers across industries several clear industry trends have been found. These include:

  • Insufficient and poor-quality sleep
  • Long commutes and long working days, which induce fatigue and dont allow sufficient time to achieve adequate sleep
  • The transient workforce makes poor lifestyle choices away from home and do not prioritise rest when back at home.

As a result, we commonly see issues including: poor health; increased levels of stress and declining mental health; impaired decision making; driver fatigue – including accidents and near misses whilst commuting; strained personal and professional relationships; impaired cognitive performance and executive functioning; reduced co-ordination; high levels of driver fatigue as well as poor communications.
As India becomes the top choice for doing business, we would need to tackle the cause and incidence of occupational accidents and ill health through visible leadership. OSH India through its shows provides a unique platform for safety professionals to network with industry stalwarts and gain knowledge on the latest developments in the space of Occupational Safety & Health. Over the last decade OSH India has received a tremendous response from industry professionals in India and has shown remarkable growth.
Some of the key associations supporting OSH South India include ITTA, IPAF and various training institutes. The show provides a wide range of avenues to do business and gain knowledge at various forums. Employees work under extreme hardships, risking their lives and putting their families at risk of losing livelihood. Even worse is the risk of causing permanent damage to one’s physical well-being and with it the ability to carry out one’s professional responsibilities. It has been estimated that indirect costs associated with an accident or physical trauma could be upto ten times greater than the direct costs suffered through loss of income.

Conference: Decoding Challenges to OSH in 2022

The two-day conference as part of OSH South India strives to bring all key stakeholders—government officials, HSE experts, industry associations and OSH evangelists—together to discuss occupational safety and health as a priority for companies, while reiterating the significance and business benefits of investing in the health and safety of workforce. This year OSH South India is also taking the initiative to spread awareness regarding the importance of occupational safety and health for working women, workplace ergonomics and employee health & efficiency.
India is on the growth journey towards becoming a developed, mature economy. So, as the economy increases in size and value we also need to keep a close watch on occupational accidents and workers’ health. At OSH India we endeavour to learn from the top leaders—CEOs, Health and Safety Heads across industry—to understand how to take care of occupational safety and health of workers across industry and steps required to be taken to follow best safety practices within an organisation.
OSH South India will provide leadership insights and help you empower safety and productivity at work.
