Firm improves pupils’ safety

Have your say

ROTHERHAM road surface specialist SteelPhalt is taking safety into the classroom.

The Sheffield Road firm, which produces asphalt products from slag produced by the region’s steel industry, specialises in products aimed at enhancing safety and efficiency on the roads.

Now, having worked near Thorpe Hesley Junior School, it is taking its road safety message to the schoolchildren by providing them all with fluorescent armbands.

Dean Raynor, of SteelPhalt, said: “We hope they will make the pupils more visible as they walk to and from school.”
