Occupational Safety and Health in TVET
by Engr. Sanyog Bhattarai


This concept paper is prepared for the CPSC webinar on the topic “Occupational Safety and Health in TVET”. The skilled workforce are the major contributors to the economic and social development of the contemporary global society. Unfortunately, their health and safety are often negatively influenced by the working environment, social factors, and behaviours. Although the employers are primarily responsible for providing healthy and safe working environments, the workers are also expected to follow the OSH rules and regulations to prevent work-related injuries and diseases.

Occupational health is a discipline devoted to prevention and management of occupational diseases, accidents and disabilities and to elimination of occupational factors and conditions hazardous to health and safety at work. The goal of an occupational safety and health program is to foster a safe and healthy occupational environment for the students and teachers. OSH also protects all the general public who may be affected by the occupational environment.

The program addresses the incidence of occupational diseases and work-related diseases and injuries among workers through health promotion and protection in all workplaces. It aims to improve workers' access to basic occupational health services at the working contexts.

In TVET, Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) is an interdisciplinary activity concerned with the prevention of occupational risks and hazards inherent to each occupation. OSH programs objectives are to:

  • Secure the health, safety and welfare of employees and other people at work
  • Protect the public from the health and safety risks of commercial activities
  • Eliminate workplace risks and hazards

While TVET education is concerned with the acquisition of knowledge and skills for the world of work, occupational safety and health (OSH) aims at the protection and promotion of safety and health at the workplace. Thus, it is up most important and urgent to train TVET students in OSH at the TVET institute level and after the graduation the students will comply with the OSH on the job.

Thus, it is very important to integrate OSH components in the TVET education and train the students on it and make it habit for the students to follow the rules and regulations of OSH.


This webinar session is designed to provide concept and knowledge on occupational safety and health, its management in TVET institutions, and need of OSH training to the students. It will also provide knowledge on different subject-wise safety measures & health and provide subject-wise good practices found in the TVET institutions.


  • Sharing the concept and management guidelines on occupational safety and health program for the TVET institutions.
