3 cartoon kids dressed up as safety heroes

School education program

Safety Heroes is an educational program that we deliver to help teach primary school students about electricity and how to behave safely around electrical equipment.

Teaching resources

To assist teachers who are supporting us in delivering important safety messages around electricity and electrical equipment, we have developed the Safety Heroes program.

The program provides interactive teaching resources that are aligned to support the curriculum requirements of Queensland schools. The teaching resources align with the P-6 Australian Curriculum for Health and Physical Education, and key outcomes for Science, English, Mathematics and Drama.
