In January we decided to bring back one of our most popular competitions. Our aim was to find the longest-serving school crossing patrols in the country and acknowledge their hard work. Since January we have been inundated with entries from all over the UK. Thrilled with this, we have decided to extend our competition until the end of May so that we can give awards to even more SCP’s! In case you haven’t yet heard about our School Crossing Patrols Competition, here is a recap of what you could win, and how to enter.
As many of you know, Keltic Clothing stock for next day delivery, one of the best resources for Road Safety Education: the Street Feet Road Safety Training Kit. It is a product that we are particularly proud of as we know what a great resource it is for teaching children about road safety. We love it when we get to hear about people’s use of the kit with children in their community. That’s why we were thrilled when recently the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service recently informed us of the great work that they have been doing with one of our kits.
In these early stages of the new year there is a huge buzz surrounding colour trends. At Keltic we’ve been working our way through the industry colour reports as well as speaking to our manufacturers about the palate of 2017. In this article we’ll share with you the information that we’ve found!
In 2014 Keltic announced a competition. We wanted to find the longest serving School Crossing Patrols in the country. These SCP’s would be given awards and prizes in acknowledgement of their service. The competition turned out to be very popular. We received a huge number of entries, and the hard work of SCP’s all over the UK was recognised. Due to the popularity of the competition we have decided to do it all over again!
Happy new year to all of our customers! We hope you had a lovely Christmas! After a restful break the team at Keltic are enjoying getting back into the rhythm of working life. There’s one thing that we’re not so keen on, though – the cold! After the mild weather we had over the Christmas period, temperatures are plunging at the moment. With some really wintry weather on the horizon, you’ll want to double check that your staff workwear is resilient to the cold. In this article we’ll advise on the kinds of garments that could really make a difference to your staff uniform’s warmth and comfort. Firstly we’ll address outdoor wear (for security guards, wardens and SCPs) and then we’ll turn to indoor corporate wear.
Keltic Clothing are a specialist supplier of road safety and educational resources, cycle instructor uniforms and SCP clothing and equipment. We supply these to over two hundred local councils in the UK. Together with a number of these councils, this year we’ve been thinking about how to improve road safety training in Primary Schools. We have an exclusive new stock based product to help do this. After extensively researching the effectiveness of various methods of road safety training, we now stock (for next day delivery) a training resource based on our findings. We call this interactive Road Safety training kit Street Feet.
A School Crossing Patrol’s job can be tiring. They work in every weather, on their feet constantly, carrying around a particularly cumbersome object: a stop sign. Five years ago we set ourselves a mission to make SCP’s jobs easier. We decided to drastically improve the SCP stop sign. After a great deal of research on what would make the perfect stop sign, here’s what we came up with.
‘Does my body armour need to be CE-Marked?’ is a question that we hear time and time again from employers seeking body armour for their staff. The issue can be a little foggy, so we thought that we’d clear it up.
Finding the right corporate uniform for your staff can be difficult. There are many factors to contend with. Demanding bosses and fussy colleagues are not the least of your concern, and then there’s the pressure of making sure the uniform matches the job role, projects the brand image and stands the test of time. Keeping this all in mind whilst deliberating the overwhelming range of options can get a little stressful. Hence our advice of the week: ‘try before you buy’!
The summer months are approaching and the days are getting longer. This is children’s favourite time of year. They can more easily play outside, walk to friends’ houses and maybe even make their own way to and from school. But what kids don’t think about are the dangers inherent in these activities. Each year, and particularly in the summer months, an unacceptable amount of children are hit by cars in Britain. According to recent research , road accidents account for a third of accidental deaths among 0-14-year-olds and over half of accidental deaths for 5-14-year-olds. Tragically, many of these deaths are avoidable. The answer is road safety education. This article will discuss how road safety education in schools can significantly reduce the frequency of these incidents, and improve the safety and wellbeing of children in Britain.
