Speaking on the successful conclusion of NSD 2020, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India said, "The field of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) has become a topic of prime importance over the last 30 years. The scenario in India is complex as OHS has begun to cater to the needs of mostly economic sectors such as mining, manufacturing, ports, and construction often leaving the informal sectors predominantly, agriculture and services depriving the workers of basic occupational health care. A safe and healthy work environment is the basic right of every worker, hence detecting threats and risks associated with them at work places is the need of the hour for companies worldwide today. Also, with the Governments emphasizing on the development of infrastructure and providing workplace safety with the rise in FDIs, there is a huge potential for the OHS industry in India and across the world to showcase their innovations and share knowledge."
He further added, "We would like to thank - Department of Factories, Boilers, Industrial Safety and Health & Karnataka State Safety Institute for giving us this opportunity to address this need of Occupational Health and Safety and seek to provide tangible solutions through the National Safety Day 2020 event. With new and improved technological innovations in the industry, there is an immense potential of growth in this industry along with the learning and networking opportunities for suppliers and service providers at the Confex. This event has also strengthened our presence in the Southern region which will further aid us to have a fruitful OSH South India scheduled on 2-3 July in Bengaluru."
