Building site safety taught to primary children
YOUNG children learned all about the dangers of building sites from the experts.
Larkfleet Homes visited Bourne Abbey Academy to teach the pupils about hazards of building sites.
Joeyardley, Larkfleet Group’s health and safety advisor, visited the school to speak to different age groups with interactive assemblies.
The visit was particularly relevant because the developer has started work on the Abbeyfields development which is next to the school in Abbey Road.
Mryardley said: “At Larkfleet Homes, we feel very strongly about building site safety.
“These assemblies will go some way to ensure that pupils are aware of the risks of playing in and around building sites and this is even more important with the summer holidays approaching.”
The Abbeyfields development is built on the old Co-op site in Manning Road with 108 properties including 33 affordable homes.
And some homes will include solar photovoltaic (PV) panels which produce electricity from daylight, generating useable power even on cloudy days.
