The National Safety Day is celebrated every year on March 4 in India. It is an important day that aims to raise awareness about the importance of safety and health in the workplace and to promote a culture of safety among the general public.
The theme for National Safety Day 2023 is “Our Aim – Zero Harm”, which focuses on bringing occupational harm to zero.
The National Safety Council (NSC) of India, a non-profit, non-governmental organisation, was established on March 4, 1966, and the National Safety Day was first observed in 1972. The NSC was set up with the objective of promoting safety and health at work, preventing accidents and creating a safe and healthy work environment.
The council works closely with various industries, government bodies, and other organizations to create awareness about safety and health issues.
