Sometimes the company is unable to handle its operations as various departments work with each other and the challenges are very high. Departmental integration is another challenge for the company to take care of. Apart from this, there are many legislation related constraints that might be faced by the company. These are explained below:-

Health and Safety laws: the workplace health and safety laws obligate the company to provide proper safety measures in the work premises, take care of the safety guidelines, and provide timely training to employees. In addition to this, it is important for the employer to upgrade the machinery and technology and carry out safety mock drills (Bayar,2014).
