Abstract:   (248 Views)
Small industries have a large share of the country's industries, on the other hand, the risk of a work accident in such industries is higher and have poorer safety and health performance compared to larger industries, which are generally due to financial constraints, poor attitude of managers.At the same time, employees in small industries are deprived of occupational health counseling services full-time or part-time due to the small number of workers

It is suggested to adopt supportive policies in the form of packages for providing occupational health counseling services as well as health improvement programs in small industries, which are successful programs in small industries in other countries with the aim of maintaining and promoting the health of workers working in this environment. In addition to the required support policies, employers and industry managers should also be aware of the importance and necessity of implementing safety and health requirements in these industries.
