Pakistan Navy conducts annual safety review in Karachi
KARACHI (92 News) – Pakistan Navy Annual Safety Review 2017 was held at Bahria Auditorium on Monday.
Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi graced the occasion as chief guest. PN Annual Safety Review is a forum were safety standards are discussed to mark importance of safety culture which in turn provides a road map for further safe working environment in PN.
Naval operations being diverse and complex inherently carry an element of risk. The risk factor varies as how a particular task is planned and executed. Apparently a simple and routine task can become hazardous, if attempted carelessly. Conversely, an intricate task can be executed smoothly if planned and executed professionally while keeping the elements of safety in mind and with adherence to standard procedures.
Addressing the audience, Chief of the Naval Staff Zafar Mahmood Abbasi said that Pakistan Navy has come a long way in adopting a comprehensive safety regime. “The change in attitude of personnel and adaptation of safe workplace practices is though progressive but evidently visible from safe conduct of extensively complex operations. This, however, remains a continuous process. As we have stepped into 2018, our concept of safety must draw its impetus from an honest retrospection of yester year. Though there are generally no new mistakes in the realm of safety, however, a critical analysis of the ones having occurred during last year should in all probability prepare us to pre-empt and prevent them from recurring.”
Later, he gave away the safety trophies and awards to the prize winners.
