Kochi: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has informed that Kerala will introduce new laws to make the state business-friendly.

The chief minister was virtually inaugurating the Factories and Boilers department’s seminar on ‘Surakshitham 2.0: International Vision Zero Conclave on Occupational Safety and Health', aimed at ensuring the safety, health, and welfare of workers in industries.

15.71 out of the 1,27,000 enterprises that were started as part of the government’s ‘Year of Enterprises' project, are in the manufacturing industry, Vijayan noted.

Talking about the safety of workers, the chief minister said the aim is not to reduce accidents in industrial establishments but to eliminate situations that lead to accidents.

Education minister V Sivankutty, who presided over the event, said that priority should be given to the safety and health of workers.

Experts from Germany, Netherlands, America, France and the UK were part of the conclave, which will conclude on Tuesday.
