It is need for safety can scarcely be exaggerated. One goes to work to earn his live hood and to meet expenditure on brining p his family. If one ignores safety, he may get involved in an accident in the factory. He may die or get permanently disabled. In both the cases, his life will be ruined. His family would suffer, along with him. It is, therefore, of utmost importance that besides being an efficient worker, one should be conscious of safety. Some one rightly said, `safety saves.’
However, efficient a worker might be, he cannot claim that he will not meet with an accident in the factory, unless he is fully cautious about safety. The first fundamental concept of safety is that accidents do not happen or their own; they are caused. If utmost precaution is taken such accidents can be a avoided to a large extent.
If, therefore, becomes necessary to take measures for ensuring safety in factories. Thus the second concept of safety is that we must take action to prevent accidents.
Many times it happiness in our homes as well as in factories that when a minor fault in a machine or electricity points is noticed an adhoc or temporary arrangement made instead of removing the fault permanently. Such type of mistake can prove fatal. Therefore, one must not ignore the defects that are likely to cause accidents but they should be removed permanently. This tells us about the third fundamental concept of safety namely, the same kind of accident can happen again.
