Health and safety visit at Banks Avenue School
MacDow Fletcher recently spent two days at Banks Avenue School, Shirley, talking to the children about health and safety around SCIRT work sites. This visit was incredibly rewarding, and has given the MacDow Fletcher team a good appreciation of how hard teachers work.
The safety message was hands-on: trying on contractors' protective equipment – high-visibility jackets, gloves, glasses, hard hats; discussing how to keep safe using toys and mini-signage and passing around real road pipes and working out why some worked in one situation and not others. With so much work in the Dallington and Richmond areas being carried out at the moment and more starting all the time, it is more important than ever to keep some of our smallest Christchurch residents safe.
