IRELAND: Raising school pupils’ awareness of safety with “Keep Safe”

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > IRELAND: Raising school pupils’ awareness of safety with “Keep Safe”

In mid-May, more than 100 school pupils attended a “Keep Safe” event organized by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA). This travelling show aims to promote safety and raise children’s awareness by involving them in a series of interactive scenarios on a major safety issue. 

In one day, the children can learn safety in various contexts – roads, nautical and fire – become aware of their own safety and safety in the home, learn how to respond to dangerous situations or learn to recognize dangers and manage risks.

“Keep Safe” is travelling through the country. Awareness had already been developed in about one hundred school pupils last month.
