The first National Safety Day (NSD) Campaign was established in 1972 to commemorate the Council’s Foundation Day, March 4th, and has been held every year since. With the active assistance of the Central and State Governments, as well as the media, the Campaign has evolved into a significant national campaign widely celebrated by industry, trade unions, government departments, regulatory agencies, NGOs, and institutions. It has had an impact on the national industrial scene by contributing to enhanced safety awareness and accident reduction. The NSD Campaign, which began on March 4th for a single day, has now been extended for a week, from March 4th to March 11th.
