CHENNAI: There has been a reduction in the number of accidents occurring in industrial workplaces because of a number awareness campaigns carried out by the State, said Rural Industries and Labour Minister, P Mohan at the 45th National Safety Day observed here on Friday.

The minister was speaking at a programme jointly organised by the National Safety Council (TN Chapter) and the Labour Department of the state government, to raise awareness about the safety of industrial workers.

As a result, we have seen a decrease in the number of industrial accidents,” the minister added.
