Car Safety Icons
Keeping children safe is our highest priority.

One of the main reasons so many child car seats are incorrectly fitted, is the confusion around what constitutes ‘safe fitting’ and its critical importance.

We see this confusion not only among parents and carers, but also among retail staff and those who have a statutory duty to ensure the safe transportation of children.

All want reassurance they are giving and receiving the right information, so it is not a lack of interest nor a lack of professional care that causes this problem but generally a lack of knowledge and an abundance of misinformation.

Our new Child Seat Training Programme is designed to end this confusion by simplifying the complex and shining a bright light on what constitutes ‘best practice’ above and beyond basic legal requirements.

“Driving up standards=driving down casualties”

Exploring Child Car Seat Safety in Great Britain

Independent study

Good Egg Safety commissioned Agilysis – Transport Behaviour & Safety Consultants – to undertake extensive research to inform this child seat training programme.

Their comprehensive 79-page report is included within the Knowledge Hub for reference.


What's included?

After several years of extensive collaboration with industry leaders in car/child seat manufacture, road safety and retail, this S.A.F.E Training Programme includes the following:

Covering child life stages and development and corresponding child seat stages (eg baby/toddler/child).
Correct fitment of child seat into vehicle and child into car seat.
Special child seat features.
Includes: dynamic impact testing, the safety benefits of extended rear facing, UK law, differences in UN regulations (R44/R129) , how to identify/fix common errors and much more.
All our child seat training is underpinned by identifiable behavioural change techniques (BCTs) utilising the COM B model.

Not every child seat fits every car
