Our Yorkshire team visited Mosborough Primary School in Sheffield, to educate the pupils on the importance of health and safety on a construction site. The pupils were invited to take part in the presentation as they are situated close to the region’s Connect at Halfway development.

The 45-minute health and safety presentation also covered other high-risk areas within the home, such as garages and garden sheds. Pupils had the opportunity to ask any questions that they may have and dress up in the personal protection equipment that would be required on a construction site.

 

Keith Chester, site administrator at Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, adds: “As a leading homebuilder, we are often building in residential areas and near local schools, so it’s our responsibility to share our health and safety expertise with the wider community. We sincerely hope that the children have enjoyed themselves and now know how to stay safe when near our development.”

 

Keith concludes: “It has been great to see how dedicated the teachers and staff at the school are to the health and safety of their pupils, and we more than happy to help them out.”
