Prime minister David Cameron is hoping to free small and medium enterprises from health and safety red tape, which may affect how firms install safety signage.

Mr Cameron announced that he aims to tackle the compensation culture, addressing fears that businesses will be sued for trivial or excessive claims, while the demands of insurance companies will also be investigated.

Speaking at Intuit UK in Maidenhead, he explained: "I am determined that we do everything possible to take the brakes off business: cutting taxes; slashing red tape; putting billions into big infrastructure projects; making it much easier for British firms to get out there and trade with the world."

Mr Cameron then described health and safety as an albatross around the neck of British businesses.

Last month, Welsh college Ystrad Mynach was presented with an award in the Welsh assembly government's Corporate Health Standard scheme.

The college was handed a bronze award in the programme, recognising its health and safety commitments.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801257152-ADNFCR
