In order to ensure safety, it has to become a way of life & not a chore which needs to be repeatedly performed.Complying with the bare minimum standards is not enough to ensure safety. Keep enough buffers for your personal safety & for others too.

A generative safety culture prevails when everyone feels responsible for managing their safety and that of others.

Today’s high safety standards in some countries are a direct result of long-term policies encouraging social dialogue, effective legislation and a strong prevailing safety culture. .

Even a non-traditional work environment builds on traditional values and concepts. Trust is one of those values that are of increasing importance. In order to build and promote safety culture, there is an urgent need to build trust amongst the stakeholders. Steven Covey author of ‘Speed of trust” has observed that in poor-performing work cultures low trust often masquerades as bureaucracy, dysfunction, inefficiency, turnover or disengagement. Leaders mistakenly dismiss trust-building as a secondary focus, concentrating on the wrong cause — when the trust should actually be the primary focus.


The sole objective of ‘Safety Matters’ is to establish a generative safety culture through collaboration with the society & the government

Safety matters is a non governmental organisation formed under the India Trust Act. Strong institutions are considered to be the essential foundations and play an important role in shaping and incentivising the way societies and organisations behave.

Safety matters through its various endeavours, will help take up the cause of initiating a dialogue on safety, facilitate to establish a generative safety culture through collaborative decision making and institutionalise safety.

“The first duty of business is to survive and the guiding principle of business economics is not the maximisation of profit – it is the avoidance of loss…”
