This year's campaign focuses on job safety and taking the necessary steps to prevent risks such as heat exhaustion. Furthermore, the campaign highlights numerous methods to lower the risk of solar damage and protect the body from direct sunlight. The campaign also stresses the importance of public swimming pool and beach safety, safety standards to avoid drowning incidents, and the proper use of customer products such as cosmetics, personal care, and health supplements.
Moreover, the campaign aims to highlight the significance of implementing essential security measures to ensure the protection of residences. This involves performing regular maintenance checks on air conditioning systems, maintaining indoor air quality within households, and promoting knowledge about how to safely handle LPG cylinders to eliminate any associated risks.
