Speaking on the announcement of the 5th edition of OSH South India, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India Pvt. Ltd, said “A lot of transformation has taken placed in the global labour force due to globalization and population growth. More than 80% of world’s workers reside in the developing world and these countries share global burden of occupational disease and injuries disproportionately. The situation in India is worrisome with exponential industrial growth coupled with inadequate health care delivery system, lack of sanitation and prevalence of infectious diseases. India contributed 1.9 million cases (17%) out of 11 million occupational disease cases and 0.12 (17%) million deaths out of 0.7 million deaths in the world.”
“The situation is seeing a change for the better with the government’s consistent emphasis on developing infrastructure and providing workplace safety. With the rise in investments in the sector, there lies a huge opportunity for the suppliers and service providers from across the nation and especially in the industrial hub of the South to showcase their product and solution offerings. Through OSH South India in Hyderabad, we provide the right platform to the industry to realise this opportunity.” he further added.
