Higgins Construction backs Road Safety

Posted: 02/09/2015

Higgins Construction is extremely committed to the health and safety of its staff and the community who lives around its projects and to support Brake’s Beep Beep Day the company recently organized a road safety event for children.

The event took place at St Alban’s School next to Higgins Construction’s Bourne Estate project and gave parents and children advice on road safety whilst having fun. With support of sub-contractor, Togher, the children were able to sit in a lorry and see what the driver sees while at work.

Paul Cooke, New Business Director at Higgins Construction comments, “As a company we are extremely committed to road safety and BRAKE. I am delighted the Beep Beep Day was such a success and the children also enjoyed the appearance of our health and safety mascot, Phil Safe, who helps us communicate the important message about safety around construction sites.

“We are also committed to supporting BRAKE’s Road Safety Week in November and will be organizing a series of events in support. We have also recently achieved The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) Bronze Certification, which demonstrates our responsibility in the way we operate our vehicle fleet.”

The Bourne Estate, Camden is the construction of a mixed development comprising of three blocks of six-storeys for 75 residential units. Partially in the Hatton Garden Conservation Area, there are also a number of Grade II listed buildings.

Brake is the national road safety charity that exists to stop the needless deaths and serious injuries that happen on roads every day and make streets and communities safer for everyone.
