Warning that construction sites aren’t child’s play

Building sites are not adventure playgrounds…That is HSE’s message to parents and children as school holidays get well underway in Britain.

HSE is encouraging parents to warn their children of the dangers of playing on them, after one child died and 25 were injured on construction sites in 2008/09. Dozens more children are seriously injured on sites every year.
