Uttoxeter pupils get a lesson in site safety

10 November 2017

The pupils at St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Uttoxeter got a lesson on how to stay safe around construction sites thanks to award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes.

St. Modwen Homes’ Contracts Manager, Simon Haber and the Considerate Constructor’s mascot, Ivor Goodsite, led an assembly to the whole school in a bid to promote key safety messages and ensure pupils are not tempted to play on or near building sites.

St. Modwen Homes is currently building new homes on the latest phase at Bramshall Meadows, just one mile from St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and Uttoxeter town centre.

Following the assembly, the pupils were asked to design a poster to highlight the hazards that can be found on a building site. The winning posters, as judged by St. Modwen Homes, will be displayed on the hoarding at Bramshall Meadows.

Simon Haber, Contracts Manager at St. Modwen Homes, said: “Safety is of huge importance to St. Modwen Homes. We have an above average safety record in the industry which is achieved by promoting best practice both to those working for the company and people living, working and playing nearby.

“Building sites, with their big machinery and new structures, can often seem like exciting places for children and, whilst we want them to be interested in the development, we also need to make sure that they understand that they can be dangerous places and are certainly not somewhere to explore or play.”

There is currently a range of three, four and five bedroom homes available to purchase at Bramshall Meadows, with prices starting from £209,995 for a three bedroom Mirin property.

The Marketing Suite and Show Home at Bramshall Meadows is located off Bramshall Road and is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm inclusive of the weekends.
