Building sites not summer holiday playgrounds, children warned

Watch out: Linden Homes North site manager Tony Snowden explains building site warning signs

Watch out: Linden Homes North site manager Tony Snowden explains building site warning signs

As the summer holidays approach, we’re warning adventure-seeking children, and their parents, about the dangers of playing on building sites.

Each year, many children are injured and some even killed as a result of construction site accidents in the UK. According to statistics from the Health & Safety Executive, more than 80 children have been seriously injured since 2006.

We’re encouraging parents to warn their children of the dangers and we also often organise school visits to talk directly to youngsters and teachers about health and safety.

Linden Homes North construction manager Kevin Hoyland said: "Understandably some children are drawn to construction sites as exciting places to play, but they are not playgrounds and playing on them can have potentially serious consequences.

“The school holidays present an ideal opportunity for a timely reminder to children and parents about the dangers of construction sites – many of which continue to remain active throughout the summer.

“The lighter evenings during the summer months create more time for children to play outdoors – however, we would appeal to parents to check that their youngsters are in a safe environment when playing.”
