    Children set for health and safety classes

    By Jonathan Brown on November 29, 2015

    Children set for health and safety classes

    Primary school pupils across Britain are to get health and safety lessons.

    Housebuilder Miller Homes is the organisation behind the project as the darker nights bring more risks to children.

    The property business will stage interactive classes aimed at keeping children out of danger.

    The project will discuss overall health and safety risks to look out for and how to avoid them.

    Bid to reduce child building site accidents

    It will also stress how vital it is that pupils avoid risk-taking around construction schemes in a bid to reduce the amount of building site accidents involving minors.

    The courses will involve visits to building sites, classroom-based sessions and meetings with a Miller Homes safety, health and environment officer.

    Schoolchildren will have health and safety fundamentals simply explained to them and will receive a special wrist band intended to keep them both seen and safe.

    These branded, reflective gifts should make them much more visible while playing outdoors and during the daily school walk during hours of darkness

    Tips aim to lower children’s accidents

    Miller hopes that better informed pupils will help reduce the risk of children’s accidents, wherever they may be.

    Safety, health and environment director, David Hickman, emphasises how key it is that the firm operates closely with local communities in which it works.

    He says the scheme will point out to children potential risks, especially those living near to building sites.

    Such guidance should mean they can still go enjoying themselves in a no-risk situation to either themselves or the people around them, Mr Hickman said.

    With the official start of the winter months only days away, he says that the cold, dark season helps concentrate health and safety in everybody’s minds.

    Mr Hickman says Miller officials cannot wait to meet school pupils and hopes enjoyment and safer attitudes result from the lessons.
