Year 3 & 4 TACS Visit
Keeping our children safe
You cannot put a price on a child’s life. Trucks and Child Safety (TACS) is a national safety training programme funded by the DHL UK Foundation. It aims to help keep children safe around larger vehicles on the road and targets children aged seven to 11 years old, as they start to travel independently.
DHL organises one day TACS training courses for UK employees so they can become a demonstrator; there are currently over 330 trained volunteers. Using a truck as a highly memorable visual aid, they pass on key messages regarding sight, sound and safety. Their knowledge and enthusiasm helps children avoid becoming one of over 2,300 killed on our roads each year.
