The concept of occupational safety, health and welfare has been universalized across all sectors of industry and commerce. The service sector too cannot ignore the various aspects in this regard. This is also in consonance with the Conventions of the International Labour Organisation ratified by India. The provisions will obviously be different for various sectors. Though the compliance has been made much simpler but most important is the focus of the law is on compliance and opportunity to comply; prosecution would be in extreme circumstances or defiance. This requires a review of the areas of non-compliance in the past and cost thereof in the new context.
