Improvements Required - Industrial Safety

The outlining of association of safety engineering, as done above, with quality, productivity, profit etc. has also tended to make impediments in successful implementation of safety programmes. The safety professionals tend to become overzealous and frequently are inclined to neglect cost benefit ratio and payback of their practices. It has also been observed that many workers display resistance to adopt new safety measures while confronted first time. A successful safety drive frequently comes after a number of false starts. Successful safety programmes are management initiated but workers dependent. It is always significant to take cognizance of workers' comprehension of safety and any specific safety programme.

In a survey a large cross-section of workers was consulted and it was found that employees of large organizations are more safety conscious than those of small organizations. The common feeling among workers was that safety was the responsibility of management. They as well thought government must make rules for safety and intervene more frequently in this regard. They thought sound safety programmes, training and drills were essential for safety of workers in work place. A small proportion of workers only thought that they were adequately trained and showed dependence on coworkers for safety thinking that they knew better. It was noted in the survey that the employees who did not receive safety training were liable to experience two times as many on-the-job accidents as those who had received safety training. The workers who had met accidents were not prepared to accept their responsibility towards accident where as almost 85% of them agreed that accidents could have been avoided. The general consensus between the workers was that safety programmes and training should be organized, frequent inspection and enforcement of safety rules be followed, better and more safety equipment be provided and their maintenance be made sure.
