As part of the Houlton ‘open site’ programme and in conjunction with our client Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust we welcomed 16 students from Hull Construction College to the Tower Block project at Hull Royal Infirmary for their Health and Safety Workshops.
The aim of the visit was to give students an insight in to the day-to-day running and implementation of Health and Safety procedures on a busy construction site and to put in to practice the theory currently being taught at the college.
‘Being able to make site visits allows the learners to experience a live construction site enabling them to take in information and knowledge of a typical working environment, that cannot be experienced in a classroom. The site visits allow the learner to develop an understanding of the working environment which is invaluable and hopefully gives them inspiration when it comes to making the right career choice.
On behalf of the Hull Construction College we would like to thank all the site staff at the Hull Royal Infirmary project and Houlton for their time’
