HSE and British Sugar celebrate workplace accident rate reduction

13th July 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

The rollout of risk management systems has helped British Sugar reduce accidents in the workplace over the past few years, it has been suggested.

Over the past five years, British Sugar UK has worked alongside the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) - which advocates the need for safety signs within workplaces - in reducing accidents and incidents of poor health among workers as its main processing plant in Wissington, Norfolk.

On the back of this success, both parties are now celebrating the signing of a new memorandum of understanding which will see them continue to cooperate to develop effective risk control systems and boost health and safety performance levels further still.

Announcing the development, David Ashton, the HSE's director of field operations, said: "British Sugar has put considerable effort into making improvements to its health and safety performance over the last five years - and the results clearly demonstrate how uniting employers and employees together can create safer and healthier workplaces."

Just last week, the HSE confirmed that it has fined Warwick University after an employee suffered serious injuries when his arm was trapped in a harvesting machine back in October of 2008.
