A country located on the East African plateau, Uganda is the world’s second most populous landlocked country after Ethiopia. While agriculture and allied industry remains the major source of income, exports of coffee, tea and fish and emergence of banking, finance, mining and service industries add thrust to the economic growth.
As the fastest growing economy among the east African counterparts, Uganda has huge labour force, who are mostly unskilled and untrained, and are employed in various industries. Hence work place accidents are common in Uganda which affect, both employers and employees. To prevent the loss of lives, injuries and work days, Ugandan companies are investing heavily on installing safety system and also employ people who are experts in maintaining occupational safety. There are institutions which offer training courses for employees and students on various aspects of work place safety in Uganda.
