Work site information days were a positive way to build relationships with the local community. The public was invited to visit the site on a set day and meet the people working there.
School visits were an important communications tool SCIRT used to promote to children how to keep safe around its work sites and to inform local people about its work.
Awards presented to contractors during the five-year SCIRT programme recognised outstanding safety performance - many of which are being adopted to improve safety in the wider construction industry.
