Public safety team are out and about

Posted on 30 June 2015 04:57 PM by forbe1r

Delivering our safety messages to our customers is what we are all about and there is no better way of doing that than by having a chat and giving them an opportunity to talk to us in person. As a team we attend and support numerous public safety events all over our patch.

Whether we are talking to young people, or attending agricultural or construction based shows the common theme running through all of the events we attend is getting our key safety messages across, raising awareness and providing guidance on working safe.

One of the biggest events this summer is the Royal Norfolk Show in Norwich, which is happening tomorrow and Thursday (July 1 and 2). The two-day event is a great opportunity to chat to those working in the agricultural community, families and young people all around our area.

Fast and furious
Alongside our impressive Unimog parked beside the marquee we also have a great interactive stand with danger sign puzzles, spot the danger magnetic wall boards and an interactive mock substation! In previous years it has been fast and furious taking groups around the stand but rewarding to see their reactions and to know that you have made them think and hopefully made a difference.

Providing hands-on, fun learning experiences to young people is a great way to get across the importance of looking up and around for overhead wires before going fishing, kite flying, camping, etc; recognising the importance of our warning signs and knowing what to do if any property, such as a football, is lost in or on one of our substations.

We are also supported by great volunteers from the business who work incredibly hard over the two days to hand out Power Up! Wristbands, vehicle cab safety stickers and chat to everyone who came through and past our marquee.

See you at the Norfolk Showground!
