Engaging Children in Site Safety: Induction Booklet
New and exciting ways should be sought to engage local children with the industry and to encourage site safety.
Below is an example of how a site engaged children and raised awareness:
- The company mascot ‘Buxton Bear’ featured widely in the company PR materials with its own website which can be found here;
- The site team developed a site-specific ‘Children’s Site Safety Induction Booklet’ for use on site during children’s site visits;
- The booklet is an A5 illustrated ‘Site Rule’ publication with children’s activities, puzzles and a competition based on the company mascot ‘Buxton Bear’;
- The site team further developed this innovation to provide a mature version for operatives’ use on site to retain operative’s interest about safety through them engaging with the challenging puzzles.
