Staying Safe with Sam
The dangers of laundry and cleaning products
While cleaning and laundry products make our lives much easier, if they get into the hands of unsuspecting young children, they can cause serious harm. For example, children can suffer caustic burns to their eyes and throat from powerful products. When exposed to poisons, they are more likely to suffer serious consequences as their bodies are less able to neutralise toxic chemicals.
That’s why the Child Accident Prevention Trust has developed Staying Safe with Sam, to help young children engage with learning and learn how to stay safe around cleaning and laundry products.
We’d love to hear what you think of the Staying Safe with Sam resources and how well they help you teach safety in the classroom. Please complete this quick survey. One lucky teacher will win £150 for their school.
