Housebuilder enlists help for building site 'elf and safety'

Evesham Editorial 26th Dec, 2022   0

AS THE CHRISTMAS holidays continue, leading developer Barratt Homes has enlisted one of Santa’s little helpers to send out an important message encouraging children to think about elf n’ safety.

Busy Barratt Homes staff are working on new developments across Worcestershire, many of which have families with children living nearby. With schools closed over Christmas, children are being told to stay away from building sites as they shouldn’t be visited unsupervised.

Santa has sent one of his elves to visit Barratt Homes’ sites in Worcestershire, and like every visitor has had to wear a hard hat and hi-vis clothing for protection. The elf is to remind kids to stay on Santa’s ‘nice list’ by keeping clear of building sites at all times.

Adrian Evans, Managing Director at Barratt Homes West Midlands, said: “Children, like elves, can be curious and adventurous, and turn up in the most unlikely places, especially when schools are closed. However, building sites can be dangerous places for little people.

“Developers like ourselves are building more new homes at sites all over the country, but until they are completed these places are very hazardous for young children.

“With the holidays approaching, children should think of their ‘elf n’ safety’ and stay well away from them.”

Barratt Homes hosts site visits and holds regular safety talks for schools close to its developments all year round, to encourage site safety and highlight the hazards of playing on or near construction sites.
