Honeywell Specialty Materials : 25 April, 2006  (Company News)
Honeywell, a diversified and manufacturing leader; Safe Kids China, 200 teachers and students from Xian Xiguan First Primary School and leaders from Xian Children
First prizes were awarded to Huang Junjie, for her work on the theme of home safety and fire evacuation. The event concluded with an interactive safety exercise with firefighters, teachers, students and event participants.

The Safe Kids@Home education campaign targets students between the ages of 6-12. The Winter Vacation Safe Kids@Home education project involved 80 schools and 60,000 students in Xian and Chengdu. The program was jointly launched by Honeywell and Safe Kids China, a global non-profit organization dedicated to improving child safety. The program will raise awareness of home safety practices and procedures to prevent common childhood accidents, such as fires, poisoning, or burns and cuts that may result from the misuse of household items.

“It is important to raise the children’s awareness on self protection. We shall not only care about elevating their knowledge on science, but also on their safety and health issues. The Safe Kids @ Home Education Campaign organized by Honeywell and Safe Kids China effectively assist schools for expanding home safety education programs”, Mr. Yang Qingbo, Executive from Xian Activity Center stated.

'Honeywell is a leader in safety and security around the world. Protecting our children and educating them about how to protect themselves transcends global boundaries,” Che Fei, Director of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs of Honeywell China said. “Honeywell Hometown Solutions programs offer innovative methods for children to learn about safety while being creative, and having fun at the same time. The program has reached communities throughout the world and we are very proud that the program has already educated so many children in China. We also aim enrolling the children safety programs into other provinces and cities in China.'

'Every year there are 1 million children died from accidents globally that their lives could have been saved; behind each one of those accidents, many of the children were left handicapped forever. We shall all participate in the promotion of children accidents prevention for creating a safe environment for prevention purpose. Safe Kids China also encourages more corporates to participate in children safety education program'. Stated Monica Cui, Director from Safe Kids China.

Accidental injury is the leading cause of child deaths in China. National Statistics reports that more than 100,000 children in the 6-12 age group die every year from accidental injuries, such as poisoning and fires at home. In urban areas, 40 percent of injuries occur at home, most frequently during holiday and vacation periods.

Injuries can be avoided. Safe Kids China has introduced a successful worldwide teaching model to help prevent child injury. With the support of Chengdu Children’s Palace and Honeywell, the Safe Kids@Home campaign has succeeded in educating children on fire prevention and other potential hazards at home.
