Promoting safety in the community
As construction of new homes at our Amble Court development, off Jackton Road, Jacktonhall in East Kilbride is now well underway, we were keen to promote the dangers associated with playing near any construction site. The visit gave our team the opportunity to raise awareness of the children’s need to be extra vigilant as the building of our new homes progresses.
Being proactive with local schools has proven an effective deterrent in the past as Deryck Schendel, Regional Health and Safety Advisor for Taylor Wimpey in Scotland explains: “Health and safety in and around our construction areas is of vital importance to us. Taking this type of proactive approach with local schools allows us to reinforce just how important it is for children to stay away from building sites, and it gives us the chance to remind the children that building sites are not playgrounds!”
