Important lessons in staying safe were given a fun twist when Redrow Homes' health and safety mascot Buster Bear visited Broadheath Primary School in Altrincham.
Ford explained: "Construction sites can be dangerous places and what seems like harmless fun to many children can lead to terrible accidents causing serious injury or worse. Because Broadheath School is so close to Stamford Brook, we visited the school to tell children about the importance of health and safety issues surrounding a building site."
During the visit, children were taught about the hazards on a building site. They were also told of the importance of staff and visitors to site wearing health and safety equipment and were able to try on items such as high visibility jackets and hard hats.
Head teacher Jan Dyson said: "We know that health and safety is vitally important to young children. Thanks to Buster Bear, Redrow was able to convey the importance of staying safe near building sites in a fun and engaging way."
