The Safedem Community Liaison Team visited Glebelands Primary School on Friday the 9th of March.
The Team talked to the pupils about the demolition of Tayside House. The pupils listened carefully to the presentations that concentrated mainly on safety of the demolition site. The lively sessions stimulated lots of interest and questions.
The Safedem Team hope to have inspired the pupils, and have set safety competitions for the whole school. The competition entries will be judged next month and there will be prizes for the best efforts. Keep logging on to find out who the winners will be.

Safedem have completed the works to lift down the Olympia Walkway in Dundee city centre.
The works are part of the Tayside House project which includes the demolition of the 18 storey former council offices.
The works have required detailed planning and road closures as the walkway spans the main route through the city centre including the access ramp to the Tay Road bridge.
Safedem Regional Manager , George Barclay states the works progressed well.
The dismantling and removal of the walkway from Tayside House leading to the Olympia will be carried out next week!
The Demolition will commence on Tuesday the 17th of January at 7.30pm and will be complete by Friday the 20th of January at 5.30am. We will be working through the night, to ensure there is minimum disruption to the public.
There will be extensive road closures in the area and all traffic will be diverted away from the site. The Road will close each night at 7.30pm and reopen at 5.30am each morning.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to you.
