The government today urged the manufacturing sector to implement more number of Behavioural Safety Codes as recommended by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to avoid industrial accidents.

"The government is taking more positive approach towards the industrialisation and urges the industry to implement more number of Behavioural Safety Codes recommended by the ILO to avoid industrial accidents," Ministry of Labour, Factory Advice Service and Labour Institutes (FASLI) Director General Avneesh Singh said here.

Inaugurating the 2nd National Conference of the Forum of Behavioural Safety (BESAFE) here, Singh said as of now only 43 Codes have been recognised out of the total 188 codes stipulated by the ILO.

The Behaviour Based Safety (BBS) is in very initial stage and will require more time for its implementation in various sectors of the Indian economy, Singh added.
