Safety education is the responsibility of all
staff in the school, including teaching and non-teaching staff, through the
formal and informal curriculum.

growing up - but about equipping them to deal safely with a wide range of

Why Safety is importatnt
Life is valuable. Which is why as humans, we
do everything to protect it and keep our lives safe against any untoward
incidents or accidents that may lead to injury or even death. The importance of
safety in all aspects of our lives is quite obvious. There are a lot of reasons
why and here are some.
To avoid accidents. Most of the time
accidents happen due to recklessness and irresponsibility. People who don’t
follow the safety precautions always end up getting injured or worse, getting
killed. Whether it’s inside the house or in
To stay healthy. Eating the right kind of

exercising safety precautions is a must.
To live a long life. Responsible people are
those who take care of themselves and of others because of the people who love
them. It’s not easy to lose a loved one, a friend or a family member. If you
want to live a long life together with all the people you love, live your life
Promoting safety everywhere teaches public
awareness and discipline. People who work with jobs which involve dangers are
always briefed and are required to wear safety gears. Examples of these are
cooks, engineers, carpenters, policemen, fire fighter, and chemists etc.
This can also be adapted inside the house,
school or workplace and even in the streets where there are a lot of people
driving cars because accidents can happen anytime, anywhere.
To prevent unexpected dilemmas from raising,
planning is another essential part of being safe. A lot of times. In conclusion
,you may say that life is not predictable, That no accidents or trobles can be
prevented with careful planning, organization and implementation, mater how hard
you try to protect your self, sometimes accidents just happen or you may say
that life is worth the risk but for me it’s never worth your life or the lives
of others, if you can prevent it then do it. There’s no harm in keeping oneself
Importance of Fire Safety in Schools
School fire safety is
important for the simple reason that a large number of children are gathered at
one place and a single fire can affect all of them. Most of the furniture in a
class room such as chairs, tables and desks are made from wood and these can
easily catch fire. The chemistry lab which contains large quantities of
flammable liquids is especially at risk. A fire in such places can go out of
control and thus, fire safety in schools has become an extremely important
issue. An uncontrolled fire can cause not just property damage but also huge
loss in life.
In case schools have a
canteen, this usually involves dealing with large containers of LPG and
accidents with these can lead to fire breakouts as well. This situation must
also be monitored regularly to ensure fire safety in schools.
Every school must take the
necessary precautions in order to prevent anything untoward from happening in
the case of an emergency, like a fire. Every floor must have a fire
extinguisher or at the very least sand banks must be set in place. These can be
used to contain the fire before it spreads. Teachers and non-teaching staff
such as peons and other helpers must be instructed in the use of fire
extinguishers. This is of primary importance. The school must have
a particular method set in
place for emergency evacuation of students and drills must be conducted on a
frequent basis. This will ensure that students know who to reach in case of an
emergency. The school must be in contact with emergency services like the fire
and rescue department and ensure that they respond as soon as possible in case
of an emergency.
Fire alarms are expensive,
however they are a necessary investment and these may well save many lives in
case of any crisis. Fire alarms must be placed at strategic points and they
must be checked regularly.
Schools are entirely
responsible for the safety of their children and they cannot expect the
government to install any fire safety provisions. Government enforcement of
fire safety in schools in India is deficient and the schools must take it up
into their own hands to do the necessary actions.
