Teaching valuable skills benefits both the community and the image of the industry.

It is important for the industry to share its knowledge and expertise with local communities.

This not only improves the image of construction but transfers valuable skills for any individual’s future.

The example below shows how a site encouraged learning about first aid skills amongst the younger generations:

  • They organised for an external company to come in and deliver a specially designed young children’s first aid course;
  • 2 pupils from each year were selected by junior school;
  • Over the space of an hour they were taught to call an ambulance, how to put somebody in the recovery position and first aid do’s/don’ts;
  • A certificate was presented at the end of the course;
  • This was an excellent innovative community activity for children so young;
  • The donation of a defibrillator to the school continued to promote an ongoing, caring, positive and lasting impression of the industry, to children, parents and the community.
