Each year, children in England are injured on construction sites and we seek to abolish this by working in collaboration with schools, community groups, and our members to improve safety and awareness.
The NFB’s multi-award winning child safety campaign has been running for 15 years. Children from across England and Wales in Key Stages 1 and 2 (5-11 year olds) are invited to design a poster to warn other children of the dangers associated with playing on construction sites.
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.
