Dear Safety Professional,
              Greetings from National Safety Council- Kerala Chapter!
              We had an engaging Quarter-2 for the year 2021-22. The 2  National
              Electrical Safety Week-2021 concluded on the beginning of the quarter
              on 2 July 2021 with good participation from members for various free-
              for-all technical webinars arranged by the Chapter. Reconstitution of HSE
              Forum-Kerala (Health, Safety & Environment Professional group) under
              NSC-KC  was  another  target  that  was  completed  on  6   Aug  2021.  We
              are  confident  that  a  multifunctional  group  of  both  experienced  hands
              with young Engineers will make the HSE Forum-Kerala group even more
              effective to carry forward the message of Health, Safety and Environment
              across all forms of work.  HSE Forum-Kerala is planning to observe,
              13   October 2021, the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction in a
              befitting manner. NSC-KC extends full support to the newly reconstituted
              HSE Forum-Kerala.
              COVID vaccination for those below 18 years of age is likely to commence in
              this quarter and Indeed, this is good news for public health and wellness.
              The harvest festival of Kerala ‘ONAM’ is just over which gives us the spirit
              of Good Health, Safety in all walks of life and good environment.
              NSC-KC  building  is  provided  with  Emergency  Evacualtion  Plan  in all
              floors and an Assembly point at the ground floor. A Safety briefing on
              ‘Emergency Response’ has been recorded and will be a part of every
              meeting conducted at NSC-KC. A mock drill is also planned in the next
              quarter of the year.
              The 3  batch of Statutory training for Supervisors employed in hazardous
              process as per Sectio 41 C(b) of Factories Act, 1948 will commence on 18
              October 2021 as per COVID regulations. Registration remains open and
              interested candidates can join for the same.
              The concept of “Safety Poster of the Week’ has been introduced in
              August 2021 as an awareness campaign throwing light on Safety related
              thoughts. The same is published through the pages of e-Suraksha.
              Journal for Safety Science and Fire Research is the new ‘technical journal’
              of  NSC-KC  and  the  first  issue  will  be  released  in  January  2022.  We
              received fifteen entries for the new name for the technical Journal.  An
              Editorial board of experts for the technical journal has been constituted
              and call for papers has been released.
              Thanks for your continued support. We look forward to moving together
              to create safer and healthier surroundings.
