The matter presented in this report incorporates the results of independent investigations carried out by me. Place: Vadodara 6. Every year lakhs of workers are injured due to mechanical, chemical, electrical and radiation hazards and it leads to partial or total disablement. So in recent years, greater attention is given to health and safety due to pressure from government, trade unions, labour laws and awareness of employers.
The efficiency of workers depends to a great extends on the environment in which the work. Work environment consists of all the factors, which act and react on the body and mind of an employee. The primary aim is to create an environment, which ensures the greatest ease of work and removes all causes of worries.
Occupational health and safety is a discipline with a broad scope involving many specialized fields. In its broadest sense, it should aim at: a The promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations. Successful occupational health and safety practice requires the collaboration and participation of both employers and workers in health and safety programmes, and involves the consideration of issues relating to occupational medicine, industrial hygiene, toxicology, education, engineering safety, ergonomics, psychology, etc.
However, when health is addressed, so is safety, because a healthy workplace is by definition also a safe workplace. The converse, though, may not be true - a so-called safe workplace is not necessarily also a healthy workplace. The important point is that issues of both health and safety must be addressed in every workplace. Work plays a central role in people's lives, since most workers spend at least eight hours a day in the workplace, whether it is on a plantation, in an office, factory, etc.
Therefore, work environments should be safe and healthy. Unfortunately some employers assume little responsibility for the protection of workers' health and safety.
In fact, some employers do not even know that they have the moral and often legal responsibility to protect workers. Safety refers to the absence of accidents. Stated differently, safely refers to the protection of workers from the danger of accidents. Safety, in simple terms, means freedom from the occurrence or risk of injury or loss. Industrial safety or employee safety refers to the protection of workers from the danger of industrial accidents.
An accident, then is an unplanned and uncontrolled event in which an action or reaction of an object, a substance, a person, or a radiation results in personal injury.
They may be classified as major and minor ones, depending upon the severity of the injury. An accident which ends in a death, or which results in a prolonged disability to the injured is a major one. A mere incision or a deep scratch, say, on the leg or the shoulder, may or may not immediately disable the worker, but he or she may develop disability later. Again, a wound which may disable one worker may not disable another who receives a similar injury. An accident may be internal or external.
If a worker falls, or an object falls on him or her, it is possible he or she may show no external signs of injury, but he or she may have fractured a bone or strained a muscle or nerve- which is an internal injury.
A worker may be disabled by an injury for hour, half a day, a day, a week, a month, or a few months. If he or If the injury is such that he or she will never recover fully, his or her disability is permanent. There are the direct costs, in the form of compensation payable to the dependents of the victim if the accident is fatal, and medical expenses incurred in treating the patient if the accident is non-fatal. The management, however, is not liable to meet the direct costs if the victim is insured under the ESI scheme.
When the victim is uninsured, compensation and medical expenses are the responsibility of the management. More serious than the direct costs are the indirect or hidden costs which the management cannot avoid. In fact, the indirect costs are three to four times higher than the direct costs. Hidden costs include loss on account of down-time of operators, slowed-up production rate of other workers, materials spoiled and labour for cleaning and damages to equipment.
To a large extent, safety promotes productivity. Employees in safe plants can devote more time to improving the quality and quantity of their output and spend less time worrying about their safety and well-being.
The responsibility extends to the safety and health of the surrounding community, too. The supreme court held : An enterprise which is engaged in a hazardous or inherently dangerous industry which poses a potential threat to the health and safety of the persons working in the factory and industry in the surrounding areas, owes an absolute and non-delegable duty to the community to ensure that no harm results to anyone on account of the hazardous or inherently dangerous nature. In the criminal law, sentences are prescribed under the pollution control laws.
There is no legal ceiling on the extent of liability. Employees who forms part of the health and safety committee, should be involved in writing the policy, and to be signed by senior operating officer, to indicate the commitment of management. All levels must be aware of their individual roles and responsibilities under both state law and company standards.
This may be demonstrated Hazard assessment data could be used to determine what worker—training needs to be done, and to build the content of employee orientations and job training hazard assessment data could be used as the basis for inspection checklists. In the case of incident investigation, hazard assessment and control data can be used to help determine if a system failure was the cause of an incident.
In this case, employers should take all reasonable steps to eliminate or control identified hazards in order to make the workplace safer. The best health and safety management system cannot protect your company from all natural or unexpected disasters; however, having a good emergency response plan ERP in place can reduce the severity and risk of loss.
Knowing what to do and who to contact can save lives and reduce costs if disaster should strike. They are 1 Fencing of Machinery Sec 21 : In every factory, every dangerous part of any machinery, every moving part of a prime mover and every flywheel connected to prime mover the head-race and tail-race of every water wheel and water turbine, and every part of an electric generator, motor or rotary converter, every part of transmission machinery, must be securely fenced by safeguards of substantial construction.
The examination and lubrication of the machinery, while in motion, should be carried out only by a specially-trained adult worker wearing tight-fitting clothing. They are to be properly maintained and thoroughly examined by a competent person at least once in every 6 months.

Environment E , health H and safety S , EHS is an acronym for the methodology that studies and implements the practical aspects of protecting the environment and maintaining health and safety at occupation. In simple terms it is what organizations must do to make sure that their activities do not cause harm to anyone. From a safety standpoint, it involves creating organized efforts and procedures for identifying workplace hazards and reducing accidents and exposure to harmful situations and substances. It also includes training of personnel in accident prevention, accident response, emergency preparedness, and use of protective clothing and equipment. Better health at its heart, should have the development of safe, high quality, and environmentally friendly processes, working practices and systemic activities that prevent or reduce the risk of harm to people in general, operators, or patients. From an environmental standpoint, it involves creating a systematic approach to complying with environmental regulations, such as managing waste or air emissions all the way to helping site's reduce the company's carbon footprint. Regulatory requirements play an important role in EHS discipline and EHS managers must identify and understand relevant EHS regulations, the implications of which must be communicated to executive management so the company can implement suitable measures.

In the workplace, health and safety regulations are paramount to the well-being of the employees and the employer. Many hazards are present in today's work environments, and it's the employer's job to keep their employees safe from these hazards. OSHA ensures that all of their guidelines for health and safety or followed and anyone in violation can have their business shutdown.
Employees have a legal right to expect a safe and healthy work environment. Even though it may seem as if workplace health and safety is an obligation and cost to business owners, it has advantages in productivity and loyalty. Business owners must understand that a safe workplace is a key component to developing a positive corporate culture. Most employers would agree that preventing accidents and potential death to employees is a natural priority. Most safety issues don't arise out of nefarious intentions but come when businesses cut corners and don't take the time to train their employees properly on safety protocols.
