Safety week for Sudbury Primary School pupils
Pupils at Sudbury Primary School in Wembley spent a week leaning about staying safe around building sites thanks to Morgan Sindall.
The company is currently carrying out a £7.1 million project to extend and refurbish the school in Watford Road for Brent Council. With the majority of work taking place during term-time, Morgan Sindall sent safety, health and environmental advisor Neal Ward, project manager Neil Dunbar and site manager Colin Lucy to ensure the youngsters understood how to stay safe.
Prior to the works commencing the team, including Morgan Sindall senior engineer Luke Jameson, gave a series of demonstrations and question and answer sessions highlighting potential hazards on a construction site and gave the pupils an opportunity to try on health and safety clothing used by Morgan Sindall staff.
“We carry out a lot construction work in schools so it is especially important to educate youngsters about the possible dangers a building site can present,” says Neal. “We want to get the message across to youngsters that although construction sites might look like a great place to play, they are very dangerous places and should not be treated like playgrounds.”
He adds: “The pupils were a great audience and really keen to find out more about the construction work we are carrying out at their school. We hope they enjoy watching their new classrooms come to life over the coming months.”
Morgan Sindall is carrying out improvements at Sudbury Primary School in Wembley as part of the Improvement and Efficiency South East (IESE) framework.
