Dear Narinder,

To give you a Brief simple explanation and notes on Industrial Safety.

Meaning of Accident:

The FACTORIES ACT,1948, defines accident as, "an occurance in an industrial establishment causing bodily injury to a person which makes him unfit to resume his duties in the next 48 hours"

As per the Act, every occurance which may injure a worker is not an accident. The injury inflicted on a worker should be serious which makes him unfit for work atlest for two days. Any casualinjury is not covered under 'accident'

An Industrial injury may also be defined as "a personal injury to an employee which has been caused by an accident or an occupational disease and which would entitle such employee to compensation under the Workmen's Compensation Act,1923"

MEASURES FOR ENSURING INDUSTRIAL SAFETY:
