Taylor Wimpey is helping its staff and subcontractors beat the heat by linking-up with an online retailer to offer discounted sun cream.

The offer is part of a campaign across the house builder’s sites encouraging workers to slap on the factor 30 during the ongoing heatwave.

Sun awareness posters have been put up on developments across the country and Taylor Wimpey has joined forces with thesuncareshop.com to offer discounted sun cream for all its employees and contractors working on site.

The sun safety posters and advice cards appear on all of Taylor Wimpey’s 300 plus developments across the country in support of the Home Builders Federation Sun Awareness campaign.

Construction workers and others working outdoors are offered the following advice:

Keep your top on

Stay in the shade whenever possible and during breaks

Use a sunscreen of at least SPF30

Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration

Tell your doctor about any new or changing moles

Edward Woods, Taylor Wimpey’s Director of Health, Safety and the Environment, said: “We want all of our people to go home at the end of the day safe and healthy.

“Summer is finally here so it’s particularly important that people working outside take sensible precautions.

“The purpose of this campaign is to get people thinking about sun safety and provide advice in the form of simple steps that they can take to protect themselves.”

Kai Lacey, site manager at Taylor Wimpey’s Blenheim Meadow development, said: “This is a really good idea.

“To be honest, I think we all know we should put sun cream on when we’re working outside, but we either don’t think about it or don’t have time. The posters will be a good reminder and the discounted sun cream is an added bonus!”
