HSE reaffirms disciplined approach to health and safety
Posted by Ben Alexander
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has reasserted its disciplined approach to health and safety, warning that it will not hesitate to prosecute poorly performing companies.
This may prompt many firms to evaluate their safety signage and make any necessary changes.
It comes after Haz International was handed a fine by the body, after being found guilty of putting construction workers at risk while its Hatfield offices were being renovated.
HSE Inspector John Berezansky said: “Construction, in particular working at height, is a high risk activity with significant numbers of major and fatal injuries.”
Mr Berezansky added that it is vital that firms implement necessary standards with good planning, communication and cooperation.
The HSE’s warning follows a report for Independent.ie, which revealed that farming is the most dangerous job in Ireland.
Although farmers account for just six per cent of the country’s working population, they represented 39 per cent of all workplace fatalities last year.
