NFB launch 2017 construction safety poster campaign
The National Federation of Builders (NFB) has launched its annual child safety campaign.
Each year, children are injured on building sites and the NFB and its members are committed to raising awareness of potential hazards and improving child safety.
Now in its 15th year, the 2017 Stay Safe contest invites children in key stages 1 and 2 (ages 5 – 11) from schools and community groups across England and Wales, to take part in a competition by designing a poster to warn other children of the potential hazards posed by construction sites and the dangers associated with playing on construction sites.
As well as receiving a prize, the overall winning poster will be displayed at construction sites by NFB members to remind children to stay safe, especially during the summer holidays.
Simon Girling, national chair of the NFB, said: "The NFB’s stay safe campaign continues to provide an important message of safety to the industry’s future stars.
"The campaign reinforces the dangers posed by construction sites, but also acknowledges the interest, diversity and excitement that the building industry can offer, creating exciting career opportunities for our future generations.”
The competition closes on May 22. To enter visit www.staysafenorman.co.uk.
