Installing safety signs 'better than dealing with injuries'

26th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs, Warning Signs

One expert has said that it is far better for companies to take precautions such as installing safety signs than having to deal with worker injuries.

Mike Wilcock, head of operations for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the south-east, said that the organisation has to deal with the fallout of workers being injured or dying "far too often" and claimed this can be remedied by taking measures such as installing warning signs.

"We offer workers training, support and guidance on how to keep themselves and their workers safe and we'd much rather be doing that than dealing with the horrific consequences of accidents, most of which are easily preventable," he said.

Mr Wilcock added that it is "heartbreaking" when family members die in workplace accidents that could have been prevented by installing safety signs and urged people to take their time on the job.

Recently, Judith Hackitt, chair of the HSE, pointed out that the hundreds of deaths which have occurred in the UK's workplaces in the last few years could have been prevented by precautions such as warning signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19577652-ADNFCR
