Wire mesh guards are recommended for use in establishments that care for children, elderly and vulnerable people.


[UKPRwire, Thu Nov 05 2009] The Child Safety Education Coalition (CSEC) has recently launched a website dedicated to encouraging and supporting activities which contribute to a reduction in unintended injuries to children and young people.
In order to achieve their aim the member organisations will work together to:
• Identify common and avoidable injuries to children and young people
• Identify activities where practical safety education could be improved, extended or introduced
• Provide children with opportunities to develop risk competence appropriate to their age and developmental stage, which is transferable to all aspects of their lives
• Enable children and young people to have the confidence put their risk competence into practice
AMP Wire, with its range of wire mesh heater and radiator guards recommended for use in establishments that care for the young, vulnerable and infirm such as schools, nurseries, nursing homes and retirement homes, welcomes this move.
Children Must Not be Wrapped in Cotton Wool.
Pam Pelham, Managing Director of AMP Wire comments: “The Health and Safety Executive has published a light hearted myth of the month item for a couple of years now, many of them centred round unfound policies relating to the safety of children. I believe this new coalition that is promoting a common sense approach to risk, where children are allowed to play conkers and throw snowballs but are protected from real dangers, like being scolded by a radiator should be encouraged.”
Heating Appliances - Have you got them covered?
Wire mesh guards are recommended for use in establishments that care for children, elderly and vulnerable people. Accidents and injuries caused by heating appliances are easily avoided by simply fitting wire mesh radiator and heater guards.
Plastic coated wire mesh heater and radiator guards manufactured by AMP Wire offer an economical and more efficient alternative to traditional guards, which are often difficult to clean, restrict access to the radiator valves or heater controls and reduce efficiency by more than 20%.
With winter approaching NOW is the time to take action to ensure that your facility is offering the best protection and is fully compliant with current legislation. Order your wire mesh radiator and heater guards online or simply contact Karen on 0161 620 7250.
