Occupational Safety and Health has gained importance as a result of the tremendous forces of technological advancements in production facilities. The enlightened industrial management has accepted the responsibility for preventing accidents. Also, the economic loss suffered by the employee and the denting of corporate image of the company because of an accident has drawn the attention of the management to look into their commitment and involvement in safety at workplace.


While the change in work environment is taking place, the need for further improvement in occupational safety and health to eliminate an individual’s action in creating situations for accidents , has now been realized by a number of enlightened managements.


The industry has developed experiences in accident prevention by engineering controls to prevent accidents. It is felt that the employees could be reached through education and that safety system procedure and rules could be established and enforced.


The occupational safety and health is a priority subject in most of the positive minded progressive management. Thoughtful business leaders have realized that the financial benefits to be derived from the accident prevention work by way of direct and indirect costs and the protection from the damage to the corporate image is enormous.
