INDUSTRIAL development is the best indicator of a country’s progress but it depends on the health and safety of workers and labourers.

Therefore, working environment provides healthy working hours and reduces workers’ exposure to risks and hazards.

Safe workplace conditions promote industrial production by protecting workers’ health.

Protected working environment can increase working hours by reducing risk factors.

In poor workplace environments workers remain in most contact with hazardous gases, dust, smell, radiations, heat and extreme temperature, etc. Therefore, on-site secure conditions may protect workers from several injuries and disorders.

In developing countries the occupational conditions are fatal to workers often associated with many diseases.

But if we compare developed nations, they provide friendly environments and trained workers with existing environments of workplaces.

The safe working environments can increase productivity and product quality. It can boost a country’s economy. Thus it is required of a country to promote workers’ training regarding production of industry and provide safe working environments.

There are laws and regulations of health safety and the environment that must be binding on every country for exporting products.

Health safety and environment laws and regulations promote industrial production and quality of products side by side enhancing the quality of life of employees.
