The importance of health and safety in the workplace, including safety signage, has been highlighted with new statistics due to be released this summer.

Provisional figures from the Health and Safety Executive for the year ending April 2011 show an increase in the number of construction fatalities recorded in 2009/10, the Construction Enquirer reports.

If the figures are confirmed this summer on release, it will be the first time death levels have increased since 2006/07 when 79 people were killed, the news provider says.

It also reports that Health and Safety Executive (HSE) sources have suggested that during tight times like the recession, corners can be cut as contractors try to keep costs to a minimum.

Figures from the HSE, which works to protect people from injury and death at work, show that 152 workers were willed in the workplace between 2009/10,  ADNFCR-2754-ID-800505355-ADNFCR
