Hi, I’m Norman, your friendly builder and safety mascot for the National Federation of Builders - welcome to my website.
I am passionate about safety and safety on construction sites in particular. Between 2011/2012, 21 children were injured after being on or around construction sites. Many of these injuries could have been prevented – together we can ensure that this stops!
With your help we can educate others about the dangers posed by construction sites if used as a play ground. Firstly you need to become a ‘safety ranger’ – visit my ‘the risks’ page which will help you understand the dangers and my ‘staying safe’ which will provide you with advice on how to stay safe!
Once you are a safety ranger you can help me spread the word to other children by designing a poster or writing a short story that warns of the various hazards.
Each year the NFB and I run a poster design competition where children in Key Stage 1 and 2 are invited to design a poster to help us promote our message of ‘Stay Safe, Stay Away’ with the chance to win some fantastic prizes.
We have now found our 2014 Stay Safe, Stay Away winners for both the poster and the short story competition.
Congratulations to Jack Nesbitt (10) from Jarrow Cross Primary School, Tyne and Wear who was chosen as this year’s poster competition winner.
Congratulations to Sam Terrett (12) from Clyst Vale Community College, Exeter who was chosen as this year’s short story competition winner for ‘Fear’.
Remember – Stay Safe, Stay Away
Your friendly, NFB safety mascot
