Transparent Inspection Policy
The Labour Department Haryana implements various provisions related to safety, health, welfare and other conditions of employment under various labour laws. In order to ensure the compliance of various provisions under these enactments, the Department has notified various functionaries for the inspection of the establishments/factories. Although inspection guidelines have been framed in the past, but these have not been implemented properly; besides there have been some complaints of adhocism in the inspections. The prevalent instructions/guidelines are not conforming to the use of Information Technology, which has to be brought into fore in the near future. Therefore, a new comprehensive transparent inspection policy is required to be put in place with the following objectives:-
