A new safety award is being offered to Derbyshire schools that display a concerted commitment to the health and safety of their local community by educating them about measures such as safety signs.

The criteria for attaining the honour involves teaching key first aid skills that could enable young children to learn skills that could save lives. Also, in order to collect the achievement, schools must have trained first aiders for each year group, reports the Chesterfield Post.

Carl Makins, head of schools and community projects for St John Ambulance Derbyshire, told the newspaper: "Even basic first aid knowledge can save a life and this is our way of encouraging schools to teach these very basic skills."

Mr Makins highlighted that the new award will reassure parents that their children are safe.

Elsewhere in the health and safety industry, the Gis A Hug Foundation has donated 300 carbon monoxide alarms to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800720070-ADNFCR
