The Trading Standards service has developed a series of safety posters to highlight the risks of serious injury to children presented by ordinary consumer products. A national campaign saw these posters distributed to authorities across the UK to help inform and educate those responsible for the safety of the most vulnerable members of society. This campaign was supported by organisations like ROSPA and the Child Accident Prevention Trust. Other safety posters have been supported the work of the National Fire Chiefs Council and the British Toy and Hobby Association.
