Govt sets up three committees on occupational safety

Central Government has constituted three expert committees to review the existing rules and regulations on safety, health and working conditions standards, pertaining to factories, docks and construction work. One committee will look into the safety parameters of industries, docks and ports while the other two committees have been asked to study and suggest rules for the building and other construction works and the fire safety. The committees include experts from industry as well as subject matter, from both public and private sector across the country.
Labour Minister Santosh Gangwar has said a separate committee on fire safety standards has been formed to have a comprehensive and holistic approach for fire safety provisions, in view of recent spurt in fire accidents at workplaces. He said this process will pave the way for establishing uniform and updated standards of safety and health of workers throughout the country.
