Literature Review on Occupational Safety and Health

Although the country has identified the protection, promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical mental and social well-being of all workers in all work places as a priority and a key factor for national productivity improvements there is no national safety and health policy currently exciting in the country. Therefore it is a timely need to initiate and develop a National Safety and Health Policy. Addressing this national need, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has initiated to develop a “National Occupational Safety and Health Policy for Sri Lanka” and has invited the Institute of Policy Studies of Sri Lanka (IPS) to carry out a literature review on Occupational Safety and Health.
