Dounreay is enjoying a visitor with a difference this week.  The Alstec owned robot called Oscar is on site for Dounreay European Safety & Health Week that Dounreay is currently running.   This year's theme is making your place of work a safe and healthy place by preventing risks from 'Dangerous Substances' at work.

The robot has also been out and about in Caithness and has visited two local primary schools, Miller Academy in Thurso and Wick South School.  Alstec have owned the robot for 12 years, it is based in Leicestershire and is used to promote safety events all over the UK for both Alstec and it's clients.

Pictured with the robot, who's name is Oscar, is Peter Wright of Alstec and Heather Shone of Johnson Controls Catering Team.
