The Lagos State Safety Commission was inaugurated on the 5th of May 2009 as an office of Public Safety under the Ministry of Special Duties to set safety standards for all sectors involved in the socio-economic activities in the state. The issue of safety is a critical tool for the development and protection of valued lives as well as property. The quantum of precious lives wasted on a daily basis simply because people do not bother about taking simple precautions and passing the same to family and friends. Ordinary acts such as placing warning signs at construction sites, removing banana peel where it can slide, making sure electronic appliances are well secured from children could save precious lives. Issuance or withdrawal of overall safety compliance certificate at all levels rests with the commission.
