Children investigate the world in different ways largely depending on their age at the time. Whenever they start investigating, they risk getting themselves in to trouble. Whilst we as adults cannot prevent children from being children, we can reduce the risk to their safety with some consideration and understanding of the potential pitfalls.

The seminar aims to provide understanding of the pitfalls associated with clothing and children’s behaviour and so makes their adventures that little bit less hazardous.

This seminar will address your interest in the recognising potential risks, assessing the levels of risk from cords, drawstrings and other mechanical and chemical hazards. Instruction will provide an understanding of the hazards involved and the available tools such as legislation, codes of practise and due diligence testing. We will also give some pointers to where you might go for more information and keep abreast of changes in legislation.

Delegates are encouraged to bring along their own samples for open discussion.

This seminar is especially suited to designers, buyers and textile technologists.
