Farming safety campaign will use more warning signs

12th February 2010 | Warning Signs

A new campaign is emphasising the steps that can be taken to improve safety across Scottish farms, which may include the installation of workplace warning signs.

The Health and Safety Executive campaign will focus on both the impact that accidents can have on families, friends and businesses and improving the available information on how to make farms safer places in which to work.

National Farmer's Union Scotland president Jim McLaren commented: "Whether you are a new entrant to the sector or an old hand at farming, there are simple steps that we can all take to ensure such tragedies do not blight our lives."

HSE inspector Lawrence Murray added that the recent cold spell highlighted the need for farmers to take extra care when working and not expose themselves to unnecessary risks.

Earlier this week, the HSE stated that failure to put up warning signs can lead to increased fines for businesses in the case of workplace accidents.
