So in this article I want to put the focus on Career as Safety Personnel and to make things
easy; we have some questions to answer like-
1. What is safety management?
2. Why should I choose for this career?
3. Career scope as a safety personnel?
4. Am I eligible?
5. Why to prioritize safety; at work place?
1. Safety Management- include the study of factory act 1948 for chapter 3, 4 & 5,
health, safety and welfare respectively, of all the employees, advisory of ILO-
International Labour organization, NSC national safety committee, and some
prominent / specific safety standard OHSAS, AMSA, and some legal and statutory
guidelines NBC National Building Code,NFPA National Fire Protection association
2. As this career involves very high responsibility and accountability it will
challenge you in performing daily duties hence no other day is same, and that make
this career interesting.
3. Career- as a safety personnel is like learning everyday with variable situation
variable challenges and variable scope of growth some designation are Safety co-

5. Prioritizing safety at work place not only mitigate adverse impact but also the
Low accident rates,
Higher confidence in task
Low rate of casualties
Low rate of absenteeism
Seamless work environment for employees
And over all company reputation, higher quality standards and so on and so forth
But what's the benefit of mine to choose safety management as career; as I have stated earlier
satisfaction of job comes from ethical, legal, and financial backings.
So, ethical is like when reducing the accident rate at workplace you saved a person from life
long physical impairment, and his family from all the adverse effect that could happen due to
that accident you saved him from.
Talking about legalities involved you are important in the firm not only as a competent
employee but also as a factory act 1948 requirement of a welfare officer, safety officer, or
requirement of some standards, which makes you responsible for all the happenings in job,
and in return gives you a career stability and moving towards financial thing what you will
get, in short "high responsibility comes with higher rewards"
