Northumbrian water and Mott Macdonald Bentley were fortunate enough to be invited into Escomb Primary School.
The children of Escomb Primary School made our day!!
The project will impact on some of the children’s travel to school as a footpath will be closed, as we are working near the school we thought this was a prime opportunity to engage with school and demonstrate the importance of Health & Safety on a construction site.
Some of the project team and I presented a challenge to the children and some teachers on the importance of keeping safe when on site. Both children and teachers had to choose and dress up in the correct safety clothing which they all loved. Especially when a teacher had her/his toes trampled on…….. whilst wearing safety boots of course!!!
Our visit ended with us taking 14 children (mini police) for a walk to view our site.
Thanks to the site team who were happy to assist as they gave the children a demo of the digger.
All “Mini Police” received one of our safety certificates!
Thank you Escomb Primary.
