 Principle and rationale
          The growth in industrial and agricultural sectors requires workers to be healthy and safe. Workers today are facing health issues mainly from occupational health problems such as lead poisoning and inadequate working environment that affect workers’ health and cause occupational casualties. 
 
         Therefore it is very important for the work establishments to maintain proper occupational health standard, safety standard and work environment by applying science and technology. This also requires the owners and workers’ cooperation. Today, occupational health professional are not sufficient to meet the requirements from both private and government’s sectors, especially in manufacturing sectors. Occupational health professionals are necessary to ensure standards in health, safety and environment. This is the main reason why Western university recognizes the importance of producing the quality and highly skilled professionals to address the issues concerning Health and safety at work.
