Site Safety

Mansfield, Nottinghamshire

9th February 2012

As part of a week-long visit to Baggaley Construction, assisting them at a number of Health & Safety assemblies in schools, Ivor was invited to meet the pre-school children at the nursery neighbouring the New Sports Hall in Mansfield, which they are building for Vision West Notts.

With the nursery’s outdoor play area backing onto the site boundary, the children had already shown a keen interest in the building works. Ivor’s visit, along with the site manager was to ensure that the children stay safe whilst they are out playing.

The children and staff were shown pictures and drawings of what the building will look like when it is complete, as well as trying on a range of personal protective equipment worn by site workers.
