Schoolchildren at Rook’s Nest Academy in Outwood took part in a construction site safety assembly this week thanks to help from Considerate Constructor mascot, Ivor Goodsite and WDH.
Pupils from year one through to year six watched a presentation about the dangers of being on a building site and also found out about the protective clothing tradespeople must wear.
To encourage the schoolchildren to consider their own safety around WDH’s latest development of five properties on Bevin Close, a short walk from the school grounds, a poster competition was launched. A winning design is being chosen from each year group and will be placed on the building site’s hoardings.
Kathryn Hutchinson, WDH Tenant Involvement Officer, said:
“With so many pupils living in the local area it makes perfect sense to make sure they know exactly why they shouldn’t be on a construction site without permission. Everyone really enjoyed the assembly, so we’re looking forward to hopefully bringing some of the children onto the site in the future.”
