Water safety education 'vital for young people'

2nd December 2009 | Warning Signs

The dangers of water remain an issue of vital importance to young people, it has been claimed, underlining the need for safety signs that appeal to them. This is the view of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), which is putting together a water safety project which will aim to save the lives of youngsters. RoSPA is looking to employ someone between the age of 18 and 25 to head up the initiative. Peter Cornall, head of leisure safety at the organisation, commented: "With drowning the third leading cause of accidental death among children, it is clear that water safety is an important issue for young people." He added that the group's safety project will seek to provide young people with the tools they need to stay safe around water. Last week, RoSPA announced the release of a number of health and safety signs featuring cartoon character Homer Simpson in a number of dangerous situations.
