Moores has pledged its support to RoSPA’s Family Safety Week in a bid to help prevent unnecessary accidents among babies, toddlers and children under five.

Accidents are the biggest killer of children and young people with at least one child under the age of five killed by an accident every week, with the disadvantaged most at risk.

The safety charity’s annual Family Safety Week event, which will run from May 2-5, aims to bring people together to learn lessons and help prevent these unnecessary accidents.

In support of the event, Moores showed its commitment to 24/7 safety by running its own Family Safety Awareness campaign to help spread the word among staff and their families.

Posters covering top-tips for safer bed times, bath times, meal times, play times and travel as well as activity sheets including safety themed word searches, spot the difference, colouring sheet and a poster competition will be available for staff and their families.

Rebecca Hickman, RoSPA’s campaigns manager, said: “Every child deserves the best start in life, yet it is a sad fact that half of under-fives attend A&E every year following an accident that didn’t have to happen. It doesn’t have to be like this.

“The aim of Family Safety Week is to help raise awareness of the fact that accidents are the biggest killer of children and young people and to provide tips, advice, support and resources to help keep under-fives safe at home and on the move.

 

“We are delighted that Moores has pledged its support to the campaign, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety, not only to its staff but also their families.”
