HSE warns about importance of safety signs

16th February 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued new guidance intended to persuade companies to use precautions, such as health and safety signs, to prevent accidents in the workplace.

An event being held in Stornoway today will educate fish farmers about how precautions such as warning signs and taking time when conducting tasks will help to stop workers and those who are self-employed from being injured.

Ann Poyner, an inspector with the HSE, said that aquaculture is an important industry but has risks associated with it.

"We must not forget that the marine environment is dangerous and unforgiving. Since 2000, HSE has investigated four cases of drowning in the industry and is currently concluding an investigation into a double fatality involving a confined space," she said.

Meanwhile, workers in the farming industry have been targeted by a new HSE campaign intended to promote the use of safety signs and encourage people to take time when conducting their jobs.
