A construction firm, which is helping to build new facilities at a primary school in Portishead, has been teaching children about the importance of remaining safe in potential hazardous locations.
TPS Construction briefed all 385 pupils at High Down Junior School about the potential dangers and hazards of playing near building sites and explained how easily accidents can occur.
Two members of staff gave a presentation to the schoolchildren and showed a video on how youngsters can keep themselves safe.
The children also got to ask the experts some questions.
A competition was then run where the pupils had to design their own safety sign.

The winning three designs will be put up around the perimeter fence of the construction site.
Mike Usher, TPS’ managing director, said: “While working within the school environment it is so important that the children are made aware of the potential dangers within the construction site.
