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.
