Injured worker urges use of safety precautions

1st February 2010 | Warning Signs

A man who was injured in a workplace accident has urged firms to use safety precautions, such as warning signs, in order to reduce casualties.

Lancashire farmer David Coar, 44, badly injured his hand on a tractor fork while lifting out bales of silage last year and said that the incident may have been avoided if he had not "let his guard down" and not taken the necessary safety measures.

"Luckily it's OK now but it could have been a lot worse. It takes me a bit longer to feed the sheep now as I put the bales in a trailer before lifting them out. But it's definitely worth spending a few extra minutes to make sure I can feed them safely," he said.

Mr Coar is also backing the Health and Safety Executive's Make the Promise campaign, which urges people in the agricultural industry to always ensure safety measures, such as warning signs, are in place when conducting work.
