Accident victim speaks of safety sign importance

20th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

A worker who lost his arm in an industrial accident has spoken of how vital it is to ensure that workplace precautions are in place, such as health and safety signs.

James Chapman, who is now vice-chairman of the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, reminded companies that it only takes a moment's lapse in concentration for a devastating accident to occur - something which could be prevented by warning signs acting as reminders.

"I know only too well what can happen when safety isn't put first. A few years ago, I lost my left arm when it was caught in an unguarded PTO shaft," he explained.

Mr Chapman said the only reason the incident occurred was because he was in a hurry and forgot the importance of health and safety precautions.

His comments were recently echoed by farmer Mark Mather, of Haugh Head Farm near Wooler in Northumberland, who pointed out that there are "no second chances" for people who fail to carry out safety measures, such as erecting warning signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19566860-ADNFCR
