Environment, Health & Safety of an organization is an important aspect for its smooth and successful functioning and a decisive factor to ensure an accident-free industrial environment as well as high OH&S performance of their business activities. Proper attention to safety of employees can yield valuable returns to the company. The benefits include improving employee morale, reducing work-related injuries, absenteeism etc. thus enhancing overall productivity. Evidence shows that companies that implement effective safety and health programs can expect 20% or more reduction in injury & illness thus increasing the net efficiency of the employee and thereby enhancing the quality of rendered product/service. It also reduces the factory downtime hence enhancing the operational performance.
The safety challenges may vary from sector to sector and product to product. However, any incident at workplace causing injury could result in loss of manpower, man days and have a snowballing effect on production output, delays in shipping schedules, fulfilment, vendor relationships, customer satisfaction and much more. Therefore, we believe there is a need to lay emphasis on ‘Industrial Safety’.
Against this background, the Confederation of Indian Industry (Uttar Pradesh) is organizing a Conference on Industrial Safety - An Indispensable Aspect for Business Sustainability & Growth commencing at 1100 hrs on Friday, 18 June 2021 over digital platform.
