Ivor's educational workbook
Ivor Goodsite’s ‘Construction Site Safety’ workbook is a brand new initiative to be launched later this year by the Considerate Constructors Scheme, designed to teach children about the importance of safety when they're around construction sites. As part of the Scheme’s aim to develop the Ivor Goodsite character, this new educational workbook is just one of the exciting initiatives the Scheme will be introducing over the coming years to assist his ongoing efforts to promote safety to a young audience.
Making children aware of the dangers of playing on or near a construction site is a continual challenge, and so far, the Scheme has been able to aid contractors in doing this through the use of industry mascot Ivor Goodsite. Over the last few months, the Scheme has been developing a construction safety themed workbook to be used by teachers, site managers and parents to teach children about the dangers of trespassing on construction sites. While the workbook does warn children about playing near on or near a building site, it also promotes the industry as a great place to work when they’re older and can lead to an exciting career.
In partnership with the Children’s Safety Education Foundation (CSEF), supporters of the Scheme’s ‘Hunt the Hazard!’ initiative, the new workbook contains over 20 pages of construction site safety related stories, puzzles, and activities. Ivor Goodsite’s ‘Construction Site Safety’ workbook will be an excellent tool in teaching children that a construction site is a dangerous place, and not one that is to be explored.
