Addressing Occupational Hygiene Priorities in Emerging Economies

Time: 08:00 - 09:00

Date: 4/30/2015

Percentage share of global GDP has been declining in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries and increasing in non-OECD countries or emerging economies. This trend is likely to continue. Percent of annual growth in OECD countries has been about 3% and in non-OECD about 8%.

The significant increase in the manufacturing in emerging economies has also resulted in to the high degree of occupational health and safety risk. Addressing occupational hygiene priorities have been a challenging task due to availability of limited resources, including trained occupational hygienists.   Corporate EHS resources are dwindling. Available corporate resources are not able to cop-up with increasing demand for EHS support.

Availability of trained occupational hygienist in emerging economies is at the foundation of addressing the challenge.   Training outreach efforts have increased significantly over a period of last 10 years including academic programs and short term courses in occupational hygiene.

The presentation will focus on efforts made to address the challenges, availability of in-country resources   and regulatory framework, especially in two of the largest economies, India and China.
