Child Safety Week 2015
The annual safety drive is organised
by the Child Accident Prevention
Trust (CAPT) to raise awareness
of child accidents and provide
essential preventative advice.
This year proved to be an
enormous success, with Ivor
covering thousands of miles the
length and breadth of the UK
to help sites spread the safety
message. Activities he helped with
included helpling delivery safety
presentations as well as handing
out leaflets and giving fun packs to
children and visitors.
The Scheme has supported CAPT’s
valuable initiative for a number
of years and encourages its
registered sites, companies and
suppliers to take part and help
raise safety awareness within their
This year’s safety theme was ‘Tea-
time Terrors’ which focused on this
accident-prone time of day, when
busy parents and excitable children
are at greater risk of injury at home
or on the road.
Ivor Goodsite is a costumed
character who is available to
all registered sites, companies
and suppliers to assist them in
educating children about the
importance of safety in and around
construction sites and to promote
all that is positive about the UK
As well as hiring the Ivor Goodsite
costume, there were a number of
Ivor-related products which can
help reinforce the safety message
and remind children of the day.
