About National Safety Day
Every year on March 4th, India commemorates National Safety Day with the goal of raising awareness and commitment to working safely.
The National Safety Council established the holiday to raise public awareness of all safety principles, including road safety, workplace safety, human health safety, and environmental safety.
The holiday is also intended to reaffirm employees’ and the general public’s commitment to working safely throughout the year. Finally, the day aims to highlight the importance of following safety regulations and measures in order to avoid workplace mishaps.
The National Safety Council of India is a non-profit organisation created to assist in the generation, implementation, and maintenance of any national level of volunteer health, safety, and development gesture. The day was born out of the Ministry of Labour and Employment’s inaugural industrial safety conference in India, which recognised the necessity for national and state-level safety councils.
They proposed the National Safety Council, which went on to create the holiday as a way to encourage people to take safety precautions. In 1972, National Safety Day was commemorated for the first time on the National Safety Council’s founding day.
On March 4th 1966, the Ministry of Labour and Employment established the council to develop and implement a voluntary routine in the areas of safety, health, and the environment.
