Safety full form as a safety professional, from my point of view, is S: Search the hazard, A-Analyse the risk, F-Find the cause, E-Eliminate the cause, T-Tell to others, Y-You are safe. Another full form of Safety is “Stay Alert for Task You Do”. In this article, we will learn safety abbreviations.
- Safety abbreviations are most important not only for safety professionals but also for other professionals who work in industries or power plants.
- Safety abbreviation is most important nowadays because everybody uses a short form instead full forms like, everybody says “PPE” instead of “PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT”.
Another Example “First-Aid” is used instead of “First Investigation Relief Symptom Treatment Arrangement Immediately Disposal”. Let’s learn and discover new things about industrial safety. Safety-full-form
What is the origin of safety?
First age of safety management — the technology – The first age of safety started with the Industrial Revolution in 1750-1760 and the invention of the steam engine. Most accidents were from the technology failing, injuring workers and the public. The focus of safety management was to ensure the technology was safe to use.
‘if the technology is safe, then we will be safe’, This view of safety management became part of what known as the ‘technical age’ or the age of the technology, This technical age saw improvements in the ability to identify the ‘broken part’—the part of the technology that failed—and avoid single component failures.

Sophisticated techniques (such as probabilistic risk assessment) for managing risky technology were developed for this purpose. Technological failures, problematic for so long, could now be ‘engineered out of the system’. This is what most people thought until the meltdown of the Three Mile Island reactor (TMI).
- The accident came as a surprise to engineers and managers.
- Despite all the risk assessments and technological safety features, the reactor nevertheless melted down.
- The President’s Commission into TMI found the causes to be “people-related problems and not equipment problems”.
- As hardware and software had become increasingly more reliable, the human contribution to accidents had become ever more apparent.
In response, it was necessary for the focus of safety management to expand so that the human element (the human factor)—as well as the technology—was addressed thus creating the second age of safety management—the human factors age,
What is father of safety?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Herbert William Heinrich ( Bennington, Vermont, October 6, 1886 – June 22, 1962) was an American industrial safety pioneer from the 1930s.
How is safety important in your life?
Be As Safe as You Can | Taking Charge of Your Health & Wellbeing We all have a basic human need to feel safe: to be free from threats, to have trust and support, to be able to relax. Security – the sense of being safe physically, emotionally, and environmentally – impacts wellbeing in many ways, including physical health, emotional wellbeing, and how we manage stress.
- In addition, when you feel safe, you can focus on higher pursuits, such as your calling or sense of purpose in life.
- While we can make smart choices to protect ourselves, our personal security is not always entirely within our control.
- External factors, from the impacts of racism to natural disasters to destabilized political systems, can erode our sense of security and increase fear.
The first step in being as safe as you can is acknowledging what you can control, including your own behavior and the products you use, and learning self-protective habits to increase your wellbeing.
