A national homebuilder recently gave pupils of Williamsburgh Primary School in Paisley some reminders about health and safety.
As construction of new homes at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland’s local Hawkhead Gardens, off Hawkhead Road in Paisley gets underway, the company was keen to promote the dangers associated with playing near any construction site.
The visit gave Taylor Wimpey an opportunity to raise awareness of the children’s need to be extra vigilant as the building of its new homes progresses.

Being proactive with local schools has proven an effective deterrent in the past as Brian Henderson, Production Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland explains: “Health and safety in and around our construction areas is of vital importance to Taylor Wimpey.
“Taking this type of proactive approach with local schools allows us to reinforce just how important it is for children to stay away from building sites, and it gives us the chance to remind the children that building sites are not playgrounds.”
Nova Scott, Head Teacher at Williamsburgh Primary School, said: “I was delighted to welcome the team from Taylor Wimpey into our school to highlight the dangers associated with children playing near any construction site. It was the ideal opportunity for them to reinforce their safety message ahead of the school Christmas holidays when many of our pupils will be enjoying their time away from the classroom.
“It’s great that Taylor Wimpey understands the importance of our children’s safety, and has created such an interactive and proactive approach to appeal to our pupils.”
