PART 3 – WAYS FORWARD

1.    Comprehensive Occupational Safety and Health Legislation and Regulations

Given the dysfunctional national occupational safety and health setup, imagine the number of industrial fatalities, disabilities and ill health/disease cases occurring everyday including potential dangerous occurrence waiting to manifest if required actions are not taken. One of the required actions has been taken – passing Occupational Safety and Health Bill in 2012. But the ultimate presidential assent is still pending which still leaves us in the dark. There have been monumental losses incurred over the years and it is time we enforced proper occupational safety and health management in workplaces – A robust legislation to secure not only the safety, health and welfare of all persons at work but other persons who may be at risk as a result of activities at work.
