Students boost knowledge of health and safety signs

14th July 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

A number of schoolchildren have become more familiar with some important health and safety signs as part of acquiring a free qualification.

Ilkeston Today reports that year ten students from Long Eaton School have gained an entry level certificate in workplace hazard awareness after passing the course.

With the support of teaching staff at the institution, the pupils completed personal portfolios which enhanced their knowledge of safety signs, hazards to look out for and how to deal with fire.

Achieving the award could be especially beneficial for the youngsters, according to the publication, as they may soon be undertaking work experience placements or vocational training in their spare time.

Meanwhile, it was noted that the results of the qualification were "outstanding" as there was over a 99 per cent success.

Earlier this year, children at a school in Hounslow were given the chance to create their own road safety signs that they thought would encourage a motorist to slow down.

The Hounslow Chronicle reported that one student was set to see their design displayed following the launch of a new 20 miles per hour speed limit nearby to the school.
