Allerdale children learn building site safety
Last updated at 08:22, Friday, 10 July 2009
CHILDREN from across the region were shown the dangers of empty building sites this week.
Allerdale council set up a mock-up site at Solway House, Workington, this week for children to learn about the risks of playing on building sites.
More than 400 children were given talks by Paul Shankland, building control manager for Allerdale, and building control surveyor Daniel Sowerby.
Mr Shankland said it was vital to see first-hand the dangers that kids faced if they played on an empty building site.
One of the schools on the visit was Our Lady and St Patrick’s Primary School, Maryport.
Laura McAllister said: “The kids have now seen the dangers and hopefully it will stop accidents happening in the future.”
