Alex saw this one at JFK airport. He writes, "I guess it's everyone's job to pretend to operate safely."

Again, I think this is a correct usage of quotes. It sounds (reads) like "Safe Operations" is the name of a program. It doesn't say
"Safe" Operations
It says "Safe Operations"

just because something is a name doesn't mean it needs quote marks every time you refer to it. if the sign said:

"Bill Smith"
CEO and Friendly Guy

it would be parsed the same, but the quotes would be no more appropriate. there are plenty of other ways to call out a title, not the least of which is making the title a bit catchier so it's obvious.
