Health and safety signs 'could protect boat owners'

2nd December 2009 | Health and Safety Signs

A sector watchdog has urged boat yard owners to take measures to protect the safety of people using the premises, which could include installing health and safety signs.

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) principal inspector Steve Hull, who is leading the Boat Safety campaign, said that cold, dark winter nights are generally the time when boat yard employees decide to conduct repairs to vessels, but those who own the yard should ensure that their safety is not compromised.

"The Boat Safety campaign is about reminding owners of boat yards or marinas of their responsibilities in ensuring that their employees are working in as safe environments as possible," he explained.

Mr Hull added that the main aim of the HSE is to help and advise, but it will take enforcement action against any boat yard owner who is not attempting to protect people by installing health and safety signs and other precautionary measures.

Meanwhile, HSE inspector Roger Upfold recently said that using warning signs can help to prevent accidents which occur as a result of miscommunication.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19490235-ADNFCR
