As part of its ongoing campaign for site safety, construction company Morganstone recently visited Garth Primary School, Maesteg. The school is situated close to the Maesteg Extra Care Scheme and residential housing development which is being developed by the Company on behalf of Linc Cymru Housing Association (Linc). The pupils were given a presentation highlighting the dangers of playing on a building site and were encouraged to ask questions on site safety. Honor Goodsite – the industry’s official mascot –also joined the children to show the correct clothing that construction workers need to wear to ensure their health and well-being.
Mrs Thomas, Headteacher at Garth Primary School said:
We were delighted to welcome Morganstone to the school to share with our pupils the dangers of playing on a building site. The pupils were thrilled to meet Honor Goodsite and the presentation was lively and informative. We look forward to working with Morganstone over the coming months.
Morganstone’s Community Engagement Manager, Antonia John, said:
“We loved meeting the children to share important messages around construction site safety. We work hard to create developments that really enhance neighbourhoods for years to come and we are keen to be good neighbours ourselves, so helping young people to stay safe around our developments is an important part of this.”
Linc’s Interim Community Regeneration Manager Justine Scorrer adds:
“’This is a lovely example of how Morganstone and Linc have been working together to involve the local community and enthuse potential budding construction workers of the future.”
