Industrial safety

We have a good legal framework in the form of:

  • Factories Act, 1948
  • Employees Compensation Act, 1923
  • Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970
  • Employees State Insurance Act
But there are lapses in implementation For ex significant shortcomings in ESI facilities and in recruitment of doctors; lack of basic amenities and equipment at ESI designated facilities and often apathy among the ESI officials in monitoring overall ESI service delivery process.
Stakeholders in workers safety are:
  • Doctors
  • Immediate supervisor of accidents workers
  • Owners/heads of factories.
Training to worker is a formality.
