A fun and educating visit to Alma School to promote the importance of health and safety, on and around construction sites.

Knight Group joined forces with Countryside Partnerships and Erith Construction on November 9th 2017 at Alma School, Enfield, to promote health and safety on construction sites. As part of a regeneration project in Enfield, the first block of flats has been demolished and we are now starting the new build. It is important for the children to understand what is going on near their school and homes and how to stay safe at all times with all of the work going on around them.

Stuart Willsmer (Knight Group – Construction Associate Director) presented a health and safety assembly, along with Ivor and Honor Goodsite. The children learnt about the importance of PPE, different machinery and the hazards and dangers on construction sites, as well as the dangers of accessing a site without permission and supervision. The children got very involved, asking many questions and showing lots of enthusiasm throughout.

Each class was then taken outside and given PPE (a hard hat and high visibility jacket), where they got to personally meet Ivor and Honor Goodsite and have a sit in the Knight Group digger! Kevin Stannard (Knight Group – Contract Manager) ensured that all 480 children had a go at sitting in the digger and beeping the horn. From Nursery school all the way to year 6 everyone got involved and it proved to be a great success.

Enfield Council also visited during the workshop to show their support with promoting health and safety on construction sites and a professional photographer came to capture the day.

A big thank you to Alma School for having us and to Countryside Partnerships for organising a great day!
