Health and safety signs 'help people learn lessons'

25th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

Erecting health and safety signs can serve as a timely reminder to people of the importance of learning from their mistakes and not allowing accidents to occur again.

That is the opinion of Judith Hackitt, chair of the Health and Safety Executive, who said that serious or fatal accidents which have occurred in the UK over the last few decades could easily have been avoided, illustrating the importance of warning signs.

The expert added that not letting the memory of serious accidents fade is a vital way of preventing future incidents and health and safety signs can help to achieve this.

"Lessons learned in one industry sector can have much broader application - failure to properly isolate equipment before maintenance work continues to cause horrific injuries and fatalities to workers across all sectors," Ms Hackitt said.

Meanwhile, James Chapman, the vice chairman of the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, who had his arm amputated in a workplace accident, recently said that precautions such as health and safety signs can remind people to take their time and lower the chances of an accident occurring.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19574861-ADNFCR
