The Importance of Safety in the Sun this Summer

I recently read an article online about how a school boy returned from a school trip with really bad sunburn, and it really got me thinking about how important it is to stay safe in the sun.

The reason behind this is because backless car seats offer less protection in the event… [Read More]

Santa

I bet that title caught your eye! I wonder if Santa has any strict ‘elf and safety, sorry I mean, health and safety regulations that he has to abide by? There must be a few surely. I mean driving at night, all night, on Christmas Eve, must be pretty exhausting and I’m not sure an over-tired Santa in charge of a sleigh full of presents being driven by reindeers would put a smile on any health and safety conscious persons face?! That being said though, us ‘non-magical’ folk should probably take a few pre-cautions in the cold winter months. I… [Read More]
