McLaughlin & Harvey Construction invite Ivor Goodsite for a fun-filled day of health and safety.

Dumfries
6th December 2017

McLaughlin & Harvey Construction and their two helpers, Elf and Safety held a fun-filled day at St. Andrews Nursery in Dumfries, teaching the young minds all their is to know about health and safety.

Before the children were introduced to the man of the hour, they were read a short story about Ivor losing his PPE (not his best moment…) – this was used to explain to them just how important it is to have PPE on at all times on a building site. Elf and Safety even hid some of the PPE items that were discussed in the story on the nurseries Christmas tree for the children to find!

Ivor Goodsite then made his grand entrance to the delight of all the children. He handed out fun packs and “I met Ivor” certificates to ensure the children had a memorable day. Ivor was lucky enough to get a few high fives and one big hug before it was time to go.

Thank you McLaughlin & Harvey Construction for a wonderful event – Ivor was proud to be a part of it.
