HSE cracks down on firms not using safety signs

26th February 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

A construction sector watchdog has launched a new initiative designed to crack down on firms which are not using adequate safety precautions on sites, such as health and safety signs.

Over the coming days, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be visiting sites across Norfolk to ensure that managers are putting measures in place to protect employees.

Philip White, HSE's chief inspector of construction, said that each year too many construction workers are needlessly injured or killed while working on site and the latest round of visits will help to ensure precautions such as warning signs are being in place.

"This is the third year running we have run initiatives like this and, after these latest inspections, we hope that we can report back that we have found good practice and safely operating sites," he said.

Today, the HSE is hosting an event in Penrith, Cumbria, which will educate employees and managers about the importance of using workplace precautions, such as health and safety signs.
