MGF Support 'Breaking Ground' Working Well Together Event

MGF are pleased to announce that we will be supporting the ‘Breaking Ground’ – 7 Safe Steps – Working Well Together Event on the 17th February 2016.

Taking place at The National Safe Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon, the free morning event aims to help those involved in construction processes to identify the main failings in excavation work which lead to physical injury and to assist them in taking the necessary measures at planning stage to avoid them.

The event takes place on Wednesday 17th February from 8.45am until 12.30pm and will include talks and demonstrations about; excavation safety, contaminated land, buried services, CDM, temporary works and occupational health. Staff from our MGF South West Depot will be on hand to talk about excavation safety, best practice and the products and services which MGF can provide to assist in creating safe working environments in excavations.
