PROVISION OF SAFETY EQUIPMENT AT GROUP PREMISES

When the group took on new premises at Silverlaw Industrial Estate in Annan the Magnox Socio Economic Fund provided funding to equip the premises with fire and chemical safety equipment and storage. This allowed the group to meet legal health and safety standards and allowed volunteers and students from Annan Academy to have a safe working environment.
