New safety policy from government

Soon, a new safety policy from government will be in effect

Amendment on the safety and healthy working legislation will be taken up in the upcoming monsoon session in the parliament, informed Labour Minister Mallikarjun Kharge at a FICCI conference on 'Safety for Sustainable Manufacturing Growth'.

 

In fact, it is estimated by ILO that around 1.2 million workers lose their lives annually across the world due to work-related accidents and diseases. Each year, 250 million occupational accidents and 160 million work-related diseases occur and the economic loss from these accidents and diseases is estimated at a whopping 4 per cent of the world gross national product.

The government has declared a National Policy on Safety, Health and Environment at Workplace on 20th February, 2009 and has also coordinated with all concerned Ministries/Departments to work out their detailed action plan relevant to their working environment as per the guidelines contained in the Policy.

Further, Kharge said, “Manufacturers need to initiate continual improvement programmes aimed at achieving zero accidents in their organisations and thus improve their productivity.”

Also benchmarking was an effective tool for ensuring best practices in industries and had now become a way of learning from other people’s experiences, Kharge added.

In addition, the FICCI Safety Excellence in Manufacturing Awards have been awarded to five companies – in large and small categories.
