Supporting Child Safety Week 2020

3rd June 2020

Our book stars Harry and Amy spread an important message for Child Safety Week

To mark Child Safety Week this week (June 1-7), nmcn has launched a series of fun and engaging activities and a competition to help children be aware of the everyday dangers around them.

At nmcn, safety is absolutely critical to our business and we are passionate about educating children about being aware of potential dangers they may face from an early age.

Using the characters of twins Harry and Amy from our award-winning book When I Grow Up, we have created a series of activity challenges – focussing on the dangers of construction sites, how to keep yourself safe on site with PPE, staying safe in the sun, road safety as well as water safety awareness.

There is also a chance for children to see their work of art displayed at one of our sites with a competition to design a poster on water safety.

Charlotte Crake, Customer Liaison Manager for nmcn, said: “Safety is something that’s important every day of the year, but we are using this dedicated week to launch resources and activities to help children understand the dangers both on construction sites and in everyday life.

“They have been designed to be fun and engaging, but have a really important message behind them. They are ideal for use in schools as well as for parents currently home schooling.

“There’s also an opportunity for children to design a poster for us to display on nmcn sites. Over the past couple of months we have seen children’s creativity shine through all of the rainbow posters displayed in windows so we’re really excited to see the posters they create for this.”

The dedicated week is run by The Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT), the UK’s leading charity working to reduce the number of children and young people killed, disabled or seriously injured in accidents.

The charity exists because accidents are a leading cause of death and serious injury for children and young people, sadly many of these accidents can be prevented.
