The hazards that may be brought on by cuts to the health and safety sector have been debated at a national event in Oxford.

These dangers could affect safety signage and have been discussed by more than 140 specialists, who assembled at the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) National Safety Symposium.

During his opening address to delegates, Bruce Phillips, chair of IOSH's Public Services Group, said: "As our economy emerges from difficult times, we must continue to ensure that safety is prioritised and appropriately resourced within the constraints we have."
