Kesava PillaiDear ANNONYMOUS,
I am sure you may not get an answer to your question "how this Legal Requirement came into existence for OHS" so easily for Safety professionals are not usually taught about this issue.
Your question prompted me to make a video and publish it on YouTube, titled "Industrial Safety Too has a History" for the benefit of all the youngsters coming to the profession.
