The Association of Built Environment Students, a student society within the department of Construction Economics and Management, recently secured support from several industry partners for protective equipment for first-year construction students.

The new kit is in keeping with the motto of the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment: Do Zero Harm.

"As a faculty, we are working at creating a strong culture, where staff and students care for one another and safety becomes an inherent factor in the day-to-day business of the faculty," said the dean, Prof Francis Petersen.
