The Lebanese Association for School Safety Awareness
 
 The Lebanese association for school safety awareness was launched in 2005 to help the educational institutions in school accidents’ prevention. LASSA is also member of YASA Group for Public Safety.
The association’s goals:
- To promote school safety through the association’s services and guidance.
- To help official and private schools through an individualized program.
- To give seminars and presentations concerning school safety.
- To launch awareness campaigns through media in order to reach all societies’ sections.
 
Public safety domains:
- Transportation safety (pedestrians, buses and cars).
- Building’s safety (Windows, stairs and playgrounds).
- Sport class injuries.

LASSA and its members hope to improve the overall safety of schools through its specialized programs which cover all school safety domains. Our work varies from simple suggestions like lectures and orientations in order to reach a safety procedure applied in each school.
We hope to reach our goals with the intention that we can provide safety for our children in their second home which is school.
