SAFE India is a non-profit Nation Building Organisation taken its first shape on 11th May 2015. It was founded with the objective to HELP the HELPLESS. SAFE India has registered under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 (IGR). SAFE India believes that development can take place only when there is decentralization of activities at the grass-roots level and the people are directly involved in developmental activities. SAFE India believes in facilitating development rather than taking the task of undertaking actual development. We, at SAFE India believe that economic condition through sustainable development is the key to lead a dignified life for the rural mass. The expert group of SAFE India is consisting of expertise from different field like Disaster, Safety, Road Safety, Health, Animal Care, Safe Driving Skill, Vehicle Technical Skill, Motor Vehicle Acts & Rules, Emergency Health Care, Advocacy, Driving Behavior, Training, Traffic Management, etc.
SAFE India started its activities on Road Safety, Emergency Response & Disaster Management from it's inception. These three areas are our key thematic area of working. Each three areas are interconnected to each other. Getting better result we are always trying to update our expertise and building our team for a better intervention. We have experts & professionals in these three thematic areas who are working nationally and internationally.
Road fatalities currently lead the list of accidental deaths in India, much more than any other accidental deaths like by drowning, fire, rail or air mishaps, etc. At the inquest of the world’s first road traffic death in 1896, the Coroner was reported to have said ‘this must never happen again’. More than a century later, 1.35 million people are killed on roads every year and up to 50 million more are injured.
Road Safety is critical issue with more than 1 reported fatality every three minute in India. Thus, there are many dimensions to the problem. Unfortunately, India does not have as many running initiatives or organizations and we too, are not huge to address all issues. India ranks 1st in the number of road accident deaths across the 199 countries reported in the World Road Statistics, 2018 followed by China and US. As per the WHO Global Report on Road Safety 2018, India accounts for almost 11% of the accident-related deaths in the World. Number of ‘Road Traffic Accidents’ in the country have increased from 3,54,796 in 2020 to 4,03,116 and caused 1,55,622 deaths in 2021 (NCRB).
The fatalities in road accidents have increased by 16.8% (from 1,33,201 in 2020 to 1,55,622 in 2021).
There are many causes to the accident, but Drivers’ fault has been revealed as the single most responsible factor for road accidents. Driver's fault accounted almost 84 % of total road accident. In many states it is much more in our Country. The drivers are neglected lot. They suffer from public apathy, harassments while driving, get attracted into alcohol, and smoking, STD’s, stress because of long days away from families, and all these contribute to un-safe driving. Behavioral interventions can help them overcome some of these by incentivizing them doing it.
Road Safety Partnership is the combination of three programme:
Road Safety Award
Pledge for Road Safety
Emergency Response or First Response plays an important role during any road accident, but we don't have the Emergency Health Care facility in our country to respond in an emergency. The first one hour (Golden Hour) just after a road accident is vital to save a life. As we don't have any emergency health care facility in our country, a By-Stander can respond to an accident victim in Golden Hour. In reality it is not happening, people are not interested because of legal hassles, detention in hospitals, fear of Police, etc. The Hon'ble Supreme Court protected the By-Stander through Good Samaritan Law. But the awareness level is very poor. Only 10-20 percent of people are aware about it.
In our state natural disaster is one of the common factors. Cyclone & flood brings massive disaster in most of time in our state. We have dedicated team trained under Civil Defence to act in different disaster and emergency. During COVID time our team done extraordinary job in managing Quarantine Centre, distribution of Masks, Food & sanitizer, Creating awareness on safe & hygiene.
Road Crash, Fire & pandemic are also disaster, and we have our expert team to deal with such disasters. Our expert team & Trainers are also involved in different training at community level, fire & traffic disaster at industry, at workplace, etc.
