Health and safety issues as signs are stolen
Posted by Nicole Stevens.
The importance of signage and health and safety legislation has been highlighted after the organiser of a charity event been left with serious concerns after warning signs installed for a fun run event were stolen – but the show will go on.
According to the Press and Journal, preparation for the charity fun-run, due to take place in Buchan, Scotland, are in "jeopardy" because three safety signs have been stolen, hours after being installed on the run's route.
The safety signs, which adhere to strict health and safety laws, were put in place to warn motorists about the upcoming event.
Helen Young, a community councillor and co-organiser of the 3-kilometre challenge, told the newspaper the thefts had disrupted plans for the day.
"I bought four sign holders at £25 each and I thought afterwards they could be used by other local groups," she said.
"Someone stole two of the signs from the Artamaford crossroads. It's just mindless.
"It left me with a health and safety issue because the guidelines said I needed at least three signs when the event is taking place."
However, the councillor stressed the run would still go ahead as planned.
