Safety presentation, Wales

Palerston Primary School, Wales

19th July 2011

Weston Contractors and Ivor Goodsite travelled to Palerston Primary School in Wales, to give a health and safety in construction presentation. Weston Contractors Ltd are currently carrying out some construction work at a site near the school so it was the perfect opportunity, especially with Summer holidays around the corner, to educate the children on the importance of safety.

During the presentation, the children were shown pictures of some of the machinery being used on the nearby site, as well as being told about the various stages of development and the variety of tradesmen working on it.

The children were asked to design some posters to raise awareness of the dangers that building sites can pose and these will then be used to decorate the gates in front of the site office.
