Health and safety legislation is often not user friendly

17th February 2012 | Health and Safety Signs

Health and safety legislation and guidance are not couched in user-friendly terms, an expert says, which may mean businesses need help with adopting measures such as safety signage.

With many firms, accidents rarely occur, meaning that the motivation for people to understand the details around health and safety and working processes is less pronounced, while the risks seem smaller, according to an expert from Bibby Consulting and Support.

Michael Slade, managing director at Bibby Consulting and Support, said: "For some businesses, there isn't really an incentive to do it until you're faced with the consequences of an accident. And the consequences can be pretty severe."

Mr Slade noted that it is industries such as quarrying or mining where people undoubtedly invest time to understand health and safety.

However, in Buckingham Primary School, youngsters from Year 6 have formed a new health and safety team, the Bicester Advertiser and Review has reported.

It is hoped that the move will help to combat inconsiderate parking by parents when they drop off their children.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801295512-ADNFCR
