Occupational Health and Safety (OSH) / HIV AIDS
   

Title
Occupational accidents and diseases claim two million lives around the world every year. More than 160 million workers suffer each year from occupational hazards. Women, children and migrants in developing countries comprise the most affected class of workers. More than 1,00,000 workers lose their lives every year due to occupational diseases and accidents in India and two million new cases are added every year. These figures exclude many such cases in the informal sectors and may not include whole spectrum. This incurs huge economic cost apart from the human suffering, which has no measurable cost. Identification of workplace hazards and their subsequent control will provide the best economic solution to a healthy workplace. There is no single unified legislation, which can take care even of the basic responsibilities for the Occupational Safety and Health. The vast majority of workers or their families receive no compensation. Workplace-related accidents and diseases place a huge, preventable burden on poor people and the country. Very little or no attention is given by the concerned authority or by the government in regards to make workplaces safe and protect workers from occupational hazards.
The programme on 'OSH and Labour Rights' is committed towards maintaining the workers' state of social, mental and physical well being and preventing occupational diseases and injuries. The primary focus is on hazardous occupations, where the risks to life and safety are significantly high. Campaigning for promotion of occupational safety and health as a fundamental right of workers in all kinds of economic activities and for a comprehensive legislation on occupational safety and health as well as organising capacity building programmes with workers on issues related to occupational safety and health in various sectors, are also activities under the programme.
