Dangers of playing on building sites being hammered home to youngsters

Stratford Editorial 24th Jun, 2018   0

THE DANGERS of playing on building sites is being hammered home to youngsters.

With the school summer holidays approaching, Bloor Homes South Midlands is launching a campaign to raise awareness to highlight to youngsters the dangers of entering and playing on building sites.

Construction Director Carl Slater explains: “While the number of children killed or injured on UK construction sites continues to fall, there is no room for complacency. That’s why we believe in the importance of reminding children about the dangers of entering building sites, especially before a long holiday when they have more time to play.

“While we always ensure that all of our construction areas are fenced off with the correct warning signs in place we still want to make sure that children understand the dangers and can enjoy their summer holidays without risk of injury.”

The developer has arranged a number of site visits for schoolchildren, including at its current Banbury Road development in Southam, as part of the campaign.
