MakeItSafe – MIS is a leading forum for promoting and devising solutions to safety problems, in Barbados. 

MakeItSafe, believes that safety is everyone’s responsibility. we offer a wide range of training and educational programs designed to help everyone become safer at home, at work, at play, on the roads and 4Youth.


Be aware of your surroundings and take necessary precautions to keep yourself and others safe. Always wear appropriate safety gear, follow established safety protocols, and report any potential hazards or incidents to the appropriate authorities.

Remember, safety is everyone’s responsibility!

We also encourage everyone to buy into our vision for a life free from accidents.

We currently have four (4) divisions:

MakeItSafe – At Home

Keeping your home safe is essential to protecting your family and property. Make sure to have working smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers in your home. Keep all flammable objects away from heat sources and never leave cooking food unattended. Also, be sure to have a first aid kit on hand, and keep emergency phone numbers easily accessible.

Remember, Safety Starts with YOU!

MakeItSafe – On the Roads

Safety on the roads is incredibly important. Remember to always obey traffic laws and signals, wear your seatbelt, and keep a safe distance from other vehicles. Avoid distractions such as texting or eating while driving, and never drink and drive. Also, make sure to stay alert and aware of your surroundings at all times.

Thank you for prioritizing safety on the roads!

MakeItSafe – At Work

Safety at Work is crucial for everyone involved! Always follow the safety guidelines and procedures established by your workplace, including wearing any necessary protective gear, using tools and machinery properly, and reporting any potential hazards or accidents immediately. Stay alert and focused on the task at hand, and don’t hesitate to ask for help or clarification if needed.

Remember that everyone plays a role in keeping the workplace safe, so make sure to communicate with your colleagues and work together to maintain a secure environment. Thank you for valuing safety at work!

MakeItSafe – At Play

Safety at Play is just as important as safety at work and on the roads. Always use the proper equipment and gear for the activity you are engaging in, such as helmets for biking or skating, and life jackets for water sports. Be aware of your surroundings and any potential hazards, such as uneven terrain or inclement weather. Don’t push yourself beyond your limits, and make sure to take breaks and stay hydrated. Also, make sure to communicate with your playmates and establish rules and boundaries to prevent accidents or injuries.

Safety is very important in motor sports. If you’re attending a race as a spectator, it’s important to pay attention to the rules and regulations set by the venue, and to always stay behind the designated safety barriers.

Additionally, it’s important to wear proper protective gear such as earplugs, eye protection, and clothing that will protect your skin from debris. If you’re participating in a race, always make sure to wear a helmet and other protective gear, and to follow all safety regulations set by the race organizers.

Lastly, if you see anything unsafe or suspicious, don’t hesitate to alert the nearest staff member.

Stay safe and enjoy the race! Thank you for prioritizing safety at play!

MakeItSafe – 4Youth

Here are some tips to help make it safe for children on the roads:

  1. Teach Road Safety: Educate children about road safety from an early age. Teach them about traffic rules, road signs, and pedestrian etiquette. Help them understand the importance of looking both ways before crossing the road, using crosswalks, and obeying traffic signals.

  2. Supervise Young Children: Keep a close eye on young children near roads, especially when they are playing or walking. Hold their hands or use safety harnesses if necessary to prevent them from wandering into traffic.

  3. Use Sidewalks and Crosswalks: Encourage children to use sidewalks whenever they are available. If there are no sidewalks, teach them to walk on the side of the road facing oncoming traffic. Teach them to use crosswalks when crossing the road and to wait for the signal to indicate it’s safe to cross.

  4. Be Visible: Dress children in bright, visible clothing when they are outside, especially during low-light conditions. Attach reflectors or reflective strips to their backpacks or clothing to make them more visible to drivers.

  5. Supervise Near Busy Roads: If you live near a busy road, closely supervise children when they are playing or walking near it. Consider setting clear boundaries for where they are allowed to go and ensure they understand the risks associated with busy traffic areas.

  6. Model Safe Behavior: Children learn by observing, so be a good role model by demonstrating safe behavior on the roads. Follow traffic rules, use crosswalks, and show caution when crossing the road. Explain your actions to them so they can understand why it’s important to prioritize safety.

  7. Teach Bicycle Safety: If children ride bicycles, make sure they wear helmets that fit properly and understand the rules of the road for cyclists. Encourage them to ride in designated bike lanes or on the right side of the road, in the same direction as traffic.

  8. Advocate for Safe Infrastructure: Support initiatives and advocate for safer infrastructure in your community, such as pedestrian-friendly paths, crosswalks, and traffic calming measures near schools and parks.

Remember, the safety of children on the roads is a shared responsibility. By educating children, setting good examples, and taking necessary precautions, we can help create a safer environment for them.
