A builder has teamed up with health experts to help his bricklayers, joiners, plasterers and other construction workers across Gwynedd stay fit and well.
Anwyl Group, north Wales’s biggest private housebuilder, has teamed up with the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board on a project to make site staff in Gwynedd more health aware.
The company and the health board have worked together to create special health information packs which will initially be distributed to Anwyl sites across the county.
Anwyl Homes builds more than 300 houses a year while its contracting arm, Anwyl Construction, are currently working on over £40m of projects, including an extra care home in Porthmadog for Grwp Cynefin and a hospital extension in Blaenau Ffestiniog.
The idea for the health packs came from a chance meeting at a food festival between Anwyl Homes contracts manager John Wilson and Betsi Cadwaladr engagement officer Karen Owen.
Mr Wilson said: “I saw the health board stand with its information for the public and realised our staff on site and our sub-contractors could benefit from that kind of advice.
“We have almost 150 staff in the Anwyl Group and at any one time we can also have up to 350 sub-contractors working for us, so having the information on hand and on-site for them to read in their breaks is ideal.”
