NATIONAL SAFETY MONTH – MARCH 2015

Safety in today’s world is mandatory for one’s well-being. ‘Safety’ as a term does not imply only to industrial environments and industry personnel but to every individual carrying out any activity. For example, when taking a stroll down the road, you come across Warning sign boards, Zebra crossing, traffic lights, footpath etc. all safety measures to ensure you return home safely. Accidents and dangerous situations have reduced in number with the emergence of cautious safety measures. Safety does not just mean implication of rules and practices, but major part of it comes from ones adherence to safety measures.

The National Safety Day/Safety Week Campaign being spearheaded by the Council for nearly three decades to mark its Foundation Day (4th March) has significantly contributed to reduction in the rate of industrial accidents and created wide spread safety awareness even in such sectors which have not been covered by any safety legislation. We celebrate the 44th safety month with the theme – BUILD A SAFETY CULTURE FOR SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN
Relevance of this Theme to our Business
