Bid to cut accidents at Exeter trading estate

8th January 2014 | Health and Safety Signs

Businesses on the Marsh Barton Trading Estate in Exeter are being offered health and safety training after yearly statistics highlighted the estate’s worryingly high accident rate.

Exeter City Council has joined forces with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to provide the training. Around 700 small businesses in the Marsh Barton area will be offered a free health and safety check, tailor-made for their needs.

Free training will be offered to businesses to ensure that employees are aware of how to identify and deal with potential risks. Skills such as performing risk assessments or reading safety signs are essential to preventing accidents.

This initiative comes as a result of figures showing that more than 40 per cent of Exeter’s accidents happened in the Marsh Barton Trading Estate.

Keith Owen, Exeter’s lead councillor for environment, health and wellbeing, said: “Health and safety may not always be at the top of the to-do list for small businesses. However, by going direct to the businesses and offering free training and advice, we are sure we can help.”ADNFCR-2754-ID-801679894-ADNFCR
