Health and Safety at Workplace

Training Program – Intertek Academy

Do you know, every day people die as result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases? As per ILO record, at least 1.9 million people died, and 90 million disability adjusted life years were estimated to be attributable to exposure to 19 major occupational risk factors. Additionally, there’s some 360 million non-fatal occupational accidents each year, which resulting in more than 4 days of absence of work.

Poor workplace safety and health place a substantial economic burden on individuals, employers, and society. Introducing appropriate safe systems of work reduces the likelihood of accidents and leads to safer and healthier sites.
