Hilton primary school gets a lesson in site safety

12 December 2017

Award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes, gave the pupils of Hilton Primary School a lesson in site safety with assemblies highlighting the dangers of live construction sites.

Led by St. Modwen Homes’ Contracts Manager, Simon Haber, alongside the Considerate Constructors mascot ‘Ivor Goodsite’ the assemblies aimed to promote key safety messages, covering the various hazards that can be found and site and ensuring that pupils are not tempted to play on or near building sites.

Back in the classroom, pupils were invited to take part in a poster competition, highlighting the various safety messages covered in the assembly. Winners, as judged by St. Modwen Homes, will be displayed on the hoardings around Hilton Valley, to promote site safety to residents and passers-by.

Mr Lomas, Headteacher at Hilton Primary School, said; “St. Modwen Homes is building just down the road from our school at Hilton Valley, so it was a really useful exercise for us to have them come in and talk to the children about staying safe. By the end of the assembly, the KS2 pupils were able to recognise a number of hazards on site, as well as various the safety signs.”

Simon Haber, Contracts Manager at St. Modwen Homes, said; “A building site might seem like a great place to explore but in reality they can be extremely dangerous, especially for children looking for somewhere to play. This is why it is so important for St. Modwen Homes to work with local schools and raise awareness of the hazards to keep pupils safe.”

The Marketing Suite and Show Home at Hilton Valley is located on Land South of the Mease and is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm inclusive of the weekends.
