CNS while addressing the audience said that Pakistan Navy has come a long way in adopting a comprehensive safety regime.

“Desired objectives can only be achieved when every individual in our system starts feeling his or her responsibility,” he added.

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.

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.

At the end, Chief of the Naval Staff gave away the safety trophies and awards to the prize winners.
