Health and safety signs 'can keep farmers safe'

11th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

Correctly using health and safety signs could help to keep farmers safe this year and stop workplace fatalities in the industry, it has been claimed.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched a campaign called Make the Promise, which encourages companies to take precautions such as installing health and safety signs.

Last year, 38 people in the farming industry were killed and the organisation is urging employers and workers to make sure they do not put themselves at risk by ignoring precautions.

"Working in agriculture remains one of the most dangerous ways to make a living. It accounts for around one in five work-related deaths every year," the HSE said.

The warning comes after the HSE issued statistics revealing that there were an average of 122 accidents a week in the north-east from 2008-09, with 6,318 in total, illustrating the importance of using precautions such as health and safety signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19549159-ADNFCR
