Occupational Safety Acts

The occupational safety Acts are intended to cover every employees (even if single) and all kinds of employers from manufacturing and construction to retail and service organisation. The particular areas to be taken care of by Acts are: air quality maintenance, fire protection, electrical installations, posting of notices and warnings, sanitation, and repair of machines, reporting of accidents and illness, maintaining written compliance programme and training employees. It is imperative that government should frame rules which are largely enforceable. The rules that cannot be enforced make employees and employers equally disillusioned and the safety is affected. It is further necessary that the employers should become familiar with standards applicable to their industrial practices. Provision of protection equipment and gears may be at times hard and costly but employers forced by safety rules enforcement authority will have to create all arrangements in workplace. Various examples of protection measures may vary from such simple things as safety hats, overalls, hand gloves, eye shields or goggles to radioactive safety gears and radiation measuring devices. The last mentioned are not only necessary in nuclear processing plants but also establishment engaged in radiological non-destructive testing.
