JE backs child accident prevention campaign

Over 1,000 Year 5 pupils from all Jersey primary schools are receiving safety training throughout this week in a series of workshops at Highlands College organised by Child Accident Prevention Jersey. (CAPJ). Safety In Action runs from 4 to 12 July and consists of six, fact-packed, interactive 20-minute workshops covering Safety in the Kitchen, Road Safety, Safe Play, Beach Safety, Fire and First Aid.

Jersey Electricity is pleased to support CAP for the second year by sponsoring the charity’s safety cards, featuring useful telephone numbers, and the ‘Safety Sam’ Comic. JE’s Health, Safety and Environment Engineer Andre De St George attended the opening workshops and said: ‘This is an excellent introduction to health and safety for this age group and the scenarios they experience. It will get them thinking about safety basics. They can hopefully take this forward as they grow older and appreciate the importance of health and safety and risk assessments in the workplace and other walks of life.'
