Companies invited to apply for free 'danger' warning signs

3rd March 2010 | Warning Signs

UK firms are being asked to order 'danger' warning signs to remind their employees about the importance of preventing injuries in the workplace.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is inviting companies to request up to five of the free A5 cards as part of its new 'Shattered Lives' campaign.

According to the body, the signs are suitable for staff desks, counters and notice boards, and serve as a valuable everyday tool to keep safety considerations prominent in workers' minds.

"The 'danger' display card can be used to remind your staff of the simple actions that they can take to help prevent slips, trips or falls from height happening in particularly hazardous areas of your workplace," said the HSE.

Companies would be wise to take advantage of the free safety signs as HSE figures indicate that 10,000 Britons suffered major injuries as a result of slips and trips at work in 2008-09.

Meanwhile, leading supermarket chain Sainsbury's has revealed that it is set to give its employees new footwear over concerns about the potential for slipping and falling.
