Companies have been warned about the importance of safety signs which remind people about statutory examinations after a garage was prosecuted for failing to comply with one.

The director of Scuff Plus Limited had ignored an Improvement Notice requiring a statutory examination to be carried out on a pressure system compressor at his garage, City of London Magistrates' Court heard.

The safety order was issued to protect workers from injury, as is many safety signage around the workplace.

Richard Grant, the Director of Scuff Plus Limited, was given a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £500 costs.

Jack Wilby, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspector, said: "This cavalier attitude to safety is entirely unacceptable.
"HSE may take tough enforcement action against employers who put their workers in danger."

The HSE works to protect people in the workplace from injury and death. Recent figures from the body revealed that 152 workers will killed at work between 2009/2010. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800489064-ADNFCR
