Health and saftey talk – Basingstoke

Bramley CE Primary School, Basingstoke

7 October 2010

GB Building Solutions Ltd invited Ivor Goodsite to Bramley CE Primary School, Basingstoke, the local school to their current care home site for Barchester Healthcare.

A representative from GB Building Solutions, assisted by Ivor, gave a health and safety presentation to the children, discussing who works on a building site, who uses what tools, what the dangers are and how to keep safe.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and were left with the task of designing posters, which warned of the dangers found on building sites. The best posters will be awarded a prize when the team returns to judge the competition later in the year.
