On Monday 6TH the BTEC Engineering group went on an exciting visit to the foundry at Terrill Bros in Hayle. They were there to look into health and safety in the workplace as part of their assignment work. The students met with Martyn Curnow who is in charge of Health and safety at the site and he explained how Health and Safety is managed during the tour of the foundry. This is a huge factor when working in such a potentially hazardous environment; with molten steel, fumes and noise to contend with on a daily basis. At the end of the tour, students witnessed a casting and all the Health and safety preparation that goes into making this as safe as possible for the workforce. This was a great trip which gave a real insight into working in the steel casting industry and just how loud and hot it can get!
