Injured worker urges use of safety signs

15th February 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

A West Midlands man who was badly injured in a workplace accident has urged companies and self-employed people to use safety precautions, such as warning signs, to prevent workplace accidents.

Ken Bradley, 63, was operating on a ladder at a house in Dudley in July 2006 when he slipped and fell to the floor, resulting in a broken hip, fractured wrist and a nine-day hospital stay.

He was forced to give up his job and now works as a crossing warden, saying that people should never overlook the importance of using workplace precautions, such as installing warning signs.

"It isn't just the physical side of things it affects either. I almost missed a family holiday because I still had the cast on my wrist – luckily, it was taken off a few days before, but getting insurance to cover my injuries was a nightmare," Mr Bradley said.

Meanwhile, the National Construction College Scotland has backed the latest campaign by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which is designed to reduce the number of workplace accidents by highlighting the importance of safety measures such as warning signs.
