PRASAR is working since last fourteen years on the issue of occupational and environmental health hazards. There are many challenges and institutional gaps impeding effective prevention of occupational hazards and diseases in India. Among these are the lack of adequate resources devoted to occupational safety and health, including the provision of services and awareness building.
Against this backdrop, PRASAR is going to organize a Two Days National Workshop on “Occupational Safety and Health in India” in collaboration with (Silicosis Control Cell) Directorate of Health Services, Government of Delhi. This Workshop is supported by Centre for Budget and Governance Accountability (CBGA), Center for Worker Management (CWM) and Action Aid, New Delhi. We are glad to invite you to participate in the workshop.
The main objectives of the workshop would be to- a) discuss a range of issues relating to occupational and environmental health hazards; b) review the role of laws and regulations in controlling such health hazards; and to c) discuss the role played by different stakeholders and institutions in occupational and environmental health.
As we have limited resources at our end, therefore, if possible, to bear the travelling expenses to attend the workshop then kindly give us a line of confirmation, otherwise, we will get reimbursed a sleeper class ticket expenses only.
Further, whosoever need accommodation kindly inform us before 12th March, 2013?
If you are interested/want to make the presentation during the workshop then kindly send us a presentation before 20th March, 2013. The respective presentation will help us to develop the post workshop booklet, which would be disbursed as a Reference Book on- Occupational Safety and Health in India.
We look forward to your participation in the workshop.
With best regards,
