Plantation Workers and the OSHWC Code, 2020

Welfare provisions for plantation workers in the Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code, 2020 are subject to how respective state governments frame rules and can have wide variations too.

Further, there is a need to recognise the use of technology in ensuring better occupational safety and health outcomes.
