Child Safety Week 2014 with 10% off Ivor products


Child Safety Week, which this year runs from the 23rd June to the 29th June 2014, is a campaign held annually by Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) to raise awareness of child accidents and the measures that can be taken to help prevent them.

Thousands of organisations across the UK participate in Child Safety Week, holding events and coming up with great ways of getting safety messages across to parents and families in an imaginative, fun and captivating way.

This is a great opportunity for the Scheme’s registered sites and companies to become involved and showcase the very best of considerate construction through engaging with local communities to promote child safety.

This year’s Child Safety Week focuses on accidents which are more likely to happen during the morning rush hour by introducing the mischievous villain, Morning Mayhem. The Safety Heroes of Child Safety Week 2013 are also being brought back to show how families can take simple actions to keep children safe. Please click here to visit Child Safety Week’s website.


During Child Safety Week, the industry’s mascot Ivor Goodsite will be available to attend any child safety event you may have planned to help engage with your audience. Ivor Goodsite is a costumed character who helps to teach children the importance of safety on and around construction sites and to promote all that is positive about the UK construction industry. As well as hiring the Ivor Goodsite costume, there are a number of Ivor related products which can help reinforce the important message of safety.

The Scheme is looking to promote the excellent work that registered sites and companies undertake during Child Safety Week and will publish stories and case studies of contractors holding events on Ivor’s website.
