Online Programme on Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code 2020

Online Programme on Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code 2020

Context Setting

At its 110th session in June 2022, the International Labour Organization (ILO) included the principle ‘safe and healthy working environment’ in its Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work (FPRW). It also resolved to include ILO Convention (No. 155) on Occupational Safety and Health in its list of Core Conventions. As a result, every member country is required to ratify the Convention. The Convention requires member countries to secure safe and healthy working environment in all economic sectors.

At present, safety and health of workers employed in factories, mines, ports and construction are regulated through four central laws namely the Factories Act, 1948; the Mines Act, 1951; the Dock Workers (Safety, Health and Welfare) Act, 1986 and the Building and Other Construction Workers (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1986.  To provide broader framework for securing humane conditions of work in the country, and to rationalize and simplify the provisions concerning safety, health and working conditions in various sectors, the Government of India amalgamated thirteen labour laws and enacted the Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions (OSHWC) Code, 2020. Many State Governments have notified the draft OSHWC Rules applicable to various economic sectors. The provisions of the Code would become mandatory once the Rules, Regulations and OSH Standards are notified by the appropriate Governments.

The ISO standard on Occupational Health and Safety Management System (ISO 45001) requires every organization to include in its OHS Policy, the commitment to fulfil legal and other requirements. As such the organizations and the key managerial executives must be well prepared and equipped to implement the provisions of the OSHWC Code 2020.


At the end of the training programme, the participants will be able:

  • To know the background relating to the enactment of the OSHWC Code, 2020
