The National Federation of Builders (NFB) has launched its Stay Safe, Stay Away 2012 campaign in a bid to lower the number of injuries suffered by children on construction sites.

It aims to educate youngsters about the hazards of being near such premises and will see schoolchildren across the country between the ages of six and 12 design posters to warn people about properties in development.

Julia Evans, chief executive of the NFB, said: "Our members work hard to ensure that they operate responsibly and it is great to see thousands of schools passing on the message to pupils."

Ms Evans stressed that, for every child who is warned of the dangers of building sites, there is potentially a life saved.

Phil Johnson, director at Construction Safety, recently spoke on the topic of safety on building sites, noting that adhering to laws is not "rocket science".

Mr Johnson went to say that the current health and safety order is relatively sensible.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801351043-ADNFCR
