Go Safe Scotland is a new "one-stop-shop safety package" covering a range of topics including road, home, water, outdoor, fire, rail and digital safety. It is hoped early intervention with key safety messages will help raise awareness and reduce child casualties across all areas.

Led by Glasgow City Council, Go Safe Scotland has been developed with input from a number of partner agencies including RoSPA, Fife Council, Police Scotland, the Scottish Fire Service, Scottish Water, Scotland Gas Network, Crimestoppers, the NHS and Network Rail.

Go Safe Scotland has been written by teachers from Glasgow City Council and Fife Council, and overseen by education quality improvement officers. It is believed to be the first and currently only educational resource which allows teachers to deliver a chosen safety subject from one portal. It is fully compatible with whiteboards and computers and parents are also be able to access the Go Safe Scotland website for information on safety-related matters.

The make-up of the resource is designed to encourage partnership working in schools and provide the necessary links to the appropriate agencies. The first four topics of water safety, fire safety, home safety and outdoor safety are now live with the remaining topics being launched in 2014.
