According to Colin Powel, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure”. Schools are a great place for kids to learn how to successful in life. Aside being a place of learning, it should be conducive and safe for our children, not only in terms of its beauty and serenity, it should also be considered safe in the areas of security from threat and violence. It have a well prepared and documented emergency preparedness plan, safety policy, and the school should show great commitment to safety.

In today’s world, where the street has gone from being safe to that which is of potentially high risk zone. With gun shooting today, terrorist attack tomorrow, hoodlums striking here and there, it is highly essential that we are equipped with skills on how to stay safe.

According to United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of Statistics, every year approximately million employees are disabled at work globally. This means over 3 million people’s lives that are disrupted in an unthinkable way each year. This statistic showed that developing countries account for a larger percentage of this causalities due to the poor safety cultures, thus reinforcing the need to educate the third-world on necessary precautions and processes.
SafetySmart Africa is committed to teaching, educating and consulting for organizations in the area of quality health, security, safety and environment, so as to impact positively in the lives of workers, the employer, and their business profitability and in the overall, drive down the number of people that get disabled at work due to organizational poor safety culture.
An office should be safe and secure to all users. Their premises, properties, event, and operation should be coordinated in a way that it is not a threat/potential hazard to anyone, every time of the day, week and year.
Also, in a time like this when violence has become the order of the day, we train workers on how to respond to threats or any kind of emergency. We also have a detailed training Ushers and Greeters in religious organizations, highlighting their roles as regards the security concerns of the organization.
We help religious bodies establish a foundation for their security, and for those with one on ground, we carry out a pragmatic assessment/audit to establish the level of effectiveness of what is on ground in terms of healthcare and safety. We train their representatives on basic life-saving tips such as CPR, first aid etc.
We help them develop a safety policy, security checklist, procedures, emergency response plans, and even work permits for maintenance or construction works, coupled with bespoke safety training for their security and safety response team with respect to world best practice.
