Stay Safe Around Construction Sites As The Dark Nights Approach

As the nights begin to drawn in - signaling the arrival of autumn - Linden Homes North has issued a timely reminder about potential construction site dangers.

As tempting as it may be to sneak a quick peek around an exciting new homes development out of hours, or as daylight fades, the house builder says customer safety is paramount.

Sales director Steve Woomble said: “Just as we warn people each summer about the dangers of children playing on or around our construction sites, we want to remind people of all ages of hidden hazards should they not follow the correct procedure when visiting – particular in poor light.

“We always ask our customers to report to the sales and marketing suite on their arrival, and a member of the sales team will accompany them onto site. Our health and safety guidelines also state that customers must wear protective clothing if they are going onto site.

“As darkness is now creeping into early evening, and soon into late afternoon, we cannot stress enough the dangers of people trying to get onto a site for a look around unaccompanied or out of hours – as some of our developments do not open every day of the week.

“There are many hidden hazards that could cause serious injury – like excavations or low headroom/ scaffolding.”

The company does have strict and visible guidelines in place at each construction site and has a clear corporate responsibility statement on its website.

Here are a few common sense rules to follow and typical hazards to look out for:
