DWP consultation 'to create more safety signs'

12th February 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

A consultation paper from the DWP may see the installation of more safety signs in UK businesses in a bid to make workers more aware of their rights.

The department consultation will also examine what businesses can do to help meet their obligations to maintain employers liability compulsory insurance.

DWP minister Lord McKenzie commented that many people who suffer from serious industrial diseases are unable to trace their insurance policies and get the compensation they are entitled to.

"We will continue to work with insurance bodies, trade unions and campaign groups to ensure all those affected get the help they need," he added.

Lord McKenzie went on to say that the consultation will also aim to set up a dedicated database to help them track down their policies and a fund of last resort if this fails.

Earlier this week, figures released by the Health and Safety Executive revealed that 7,500 days of work were lost in the east of England last year due to workplace accidents that could have been prevented with safety signs.
