Kesava PillaiDear Vishalpatel,
You want to celebrate National Safety Day on March 4th but why?
Reason is to motivate employees and make them safety conscious, I believe. But why other departments are not celebrating their days like production day, Quality day, maintenance day, Procurement day, Finance day etc. Because these departments are all parts of core business and their employees will work to achieve their target failing which appropriate disciplinary actions will be initiated. Every one is accountable. Safety has no such target and if there is one it is only imaginary and who is accountable for safety? Safety Officer. No!
Function of safety department is to satisfy statutory requirements to the extent organization is not caught and penalized by authorities. All other activities are to suit the culture of the organization and often questionable.
What is National Safety Day? At least you may know; I hope.
You are forced to celebrate National Safety Day. Ok, please go ahead. Here is my answer. on celebrating National safety day in a befitting manner:
It all depends on the resources and I hope your company has allotted sufficient money and time off towards this. There are very many items from which you can choose the pack to suit your organization.
It is time to start.
1. Announce competitions on: Safety Posters, Safety Slogans, Safety essays, safety short stories, Safety cartoons etc. In some cases like safety essays you may give topic if possible.
2. Organize and conduct safety quiz competitions.
3. If possible arrange to conduct safety drama competitions.
4. Organize and conduct good safety training courses with the help of external agencies for preferably managerial staff who really needs exposure to occupational safety than lower level employees.
5. Organize housekeeping competitions among departments.
6. Arrange to fix banners at prominent places announcing National safety day celebrations along with an eye catching safety slogan.
Above activities are to be concluded well before March 3rd.
On March 4th i.e. National Safety Day,
Arrange an exhibition of safety statistics of the organization, photos of accidents, Personal Protective Equipment, Fire protection devices, Prize winning safety Posters, cartoons etc.
At the gate it self arrange to distribute safety day badge with suitable safety slogan for everyone to wear all through the day. It could also be distributed through department heads to all even on previous day.
Morning itself arrange to hoist the Safety flag by CEO with all the employees gathered around, followed by administering the safety pledge to all the employees. Distribute sweets if can be afforded.
By evening organize the safety day meeting with eminent speakers/statutory authorities; distribute the prizes for winners of the competitions and end with cultural programmes preferably with safety theme.
I gave you the idea.
Hope you good luck and regards,
