Employers may add new safety signs after a new tour visits their business.

Health and safety specialists are participating in this year's White Van Roadshow, which aims to educate colleges and construction sites in the north-west of England about how to avoid workplace falls.

Representatives from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are joining forces with construction workers in an effort to reduce the number of working injuries, with seven building sites and two colleges set to be visited.

Polly Tomlinson, HSE principal inspector for construction, said: "We hope this tour of colleges and construction sites in the north-west will help to prevent some of the hundreds of deaths and serious injuries we deal with every year."

Ms Tomlinson added that the tour will underline the dangers of using power tools and dusts that feature asbestos.

The dangers involved with using moving machinery were highlighted by the HSE last week, with the organisation claiming that it is vital for companies to prevent access to the appliances. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800534521-ADNFCR
