Building Site Safety
2 Packs are now available for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Many children are injured, and several die each year as a result of accidents on building sites. This pack aims to raise awareness of the dangers of construction sites amongst teachers, pupils and the wider community.
The packs provide teachers with a means of delivering safety education through the literacy hour. It gives children an understanding of the dangers of construction sites and provides them with strategies for avoiding them.
Other professionals working with children can also use the packs. This might include interactive safety projects such as Junior Citizen and Crucial Crew, police, local authorities, safety officers, and PSHE advisors and specialists.
