OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY, HEALTH, ENVIRONMENT AND FIRE PROFESSIONAL’S SUMMIT – 2019
25 Nov, 2019, Holiday Inn, Mayur Vihar, New Delhi
About The Event
The safety, health and environment are the vital determining factors of occupational wellbeing. Accidents causing injuries and fatalities, and diseases at work claim the lives of millions of workers resulting significant economic and financial losses. According to ILO estimates, every year, 250 million accidents occur causing absence from work, the equivalent of 685,000 accidents every day, 475 accidents every minute, 8 accidents every second.
Further, the impact of fourth industrial revolution, properly known as ‘Industry 4.0’ is yet to be experienced and studied. The cyber-physical systems will have a significant influence on the health and safety of the workers. A significant challenge, particularly in the transitional period, is posed by inadequacy of different initiatives pertaining to occupational safety, health and environment. Providing safe and healthy workplace is one of the common goals of all countries.
Therefore, an interdisciplinary approach needs to be adopted drawing on the expertise of engineers, occupational scientists, IT experts, psychologists, ergonomists, social and medical practitioners.
To achieve this common goal, cooperation and exchange of knowledge, experience and best practices among the countries on occupational safety and health is essentially required.

Vision Zero The Concept
Considering health as being the highest good of man, the primary focus should be on maintaining human health by all possible means. A reliable method for maintaining human health is to invest in the prevention of health hazards. At the same time investing in prevention helps to avoid much higher costs caused by occupational accidents, occupational diseases, and lost working time, and can also be regarded as a key competitive factor. Thus, prevention contributes to sustainable economic success of the companies as well as the preservation of employability of people.
To achieve this, the International Social Security Association (ISSA) sets Seven Golden Rules and describes a measure which forms the basis for achieving the Vision Zero.
The concept is based on four fundamental principles, viz., life is non-negotiable, humans are fallible, tolerable limits are defined by human physical resistance, and, people are entitled to safe transport and safe workplaces.
