Barratt provides site safety session to Edinburgh youngsters

BARRATT Developments has hosted an interactive site safety discussion at Frogston Primary School to remind pupils of the dangers of its nearby building sites at Heritage Grange in Edinburgh.

The session took the youngsters through the dangers of construction sites, how to stay safe near them, the developments themselves, and site worker safety.

Stewart Ponton, safety, health and environment operations manager for Barratt Developments, said, “Our site managers are very aware of the attractiveness of construction sites to children. While they might look like fun obstacle courses or play parks, the fact of the matter is that they are extremely dangerous.

“It is our duty of care to the people of Edinburgh, among the many other communities in which we operate, to provide local schools like Frogston Primary School with the proper information on how the pupils can stay safe.”
