Stay safe 2016
Each year, children in England are injured on construction sites and we seek to abolish this by working in collaboration with schools and our members to improve safety and awareness.
The NFB’s increasingly popular and multi-award winning poster competition is now in its fourteenth year. Children from across England and Wales in Key Stages 1 and 2 (6-11 year olds) are invited to design a poster warning other children of the dangers associated with construction sites.
There are some great prizes up for grabs and entries for the poster competition must be received by Friday 17 June 2016.
John Maddock, managing director of Lockwoods Construction (Liverpool) Ltd, said: “The stay safe campaign has gone from strength to strength and has become a flagship campaign that the NFB and its members can be proud of. One of the key messages is the importance of site safety. By educating the future craftsmen of our industry from a young age we may one day see these shocking accident statistics become obsolete.
It is not only the Health and Safety Executive and other bodies which need to take responsibility for protecting the public from construction, it’s ourselves, the construction companies as well. In such hard economic times many companies may be reducing their investment in health and safety programmes to cut costs. However, it is campaigns like stay safe that constantly remind us that by taking precautions we can save lives.”
The campaign is supported by a dedicated website: www.staysafenorman.co.uk.
