Occupational Safety - Industrial Safety

The bad and most debilitating experience related to work which a worker can have is a work-related accident or illness. Within the effect of accident or illness the victim worker might be incapacitated either psychologically or physically or both. The victim's fellow workers may as well be under psychological stress, which can affect their performance. The employer may be needed to undertake expenses for treatment of victim as well as for substitute worker. These reasons are strongly in favor of avoiding or minimizing chances for workers to come across accidents and as well to contract diseases.

 Governments have taken action in promulgating regulations to make sure occupational safety and as well making rules for compensation to victim worker. The occupational diseases and accidents have long history. It is recognized that workers who were engaged in construction of pyramids in Egypt attracted medical care arranged through the king. In the middle of sixteenth century miner's diseases were identified and safety related to mining of metals and ores was given due consideration. The result was that enough ventilation in workplaces and in mines was arranged. Several devices for providing fresh air in mines were developed.
