Joint health initiative 'will improve safety signage'

4th February 2010 | Warning Signs

A joint Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authority partnership aimed at improving safety standards in marine businesses across Dorset may see the installation of new warning signs at firms across the county.

The one-week initiative will be launched on February 8th and see visits carried out in Blandford Forum, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Portland, Swanage, Verwood, Wareham, Weymouth and Wimbourne.

Max Walker, HSE head of operations for the south-west, commented that common areas of concern exist when it comes to the type of injuries and risks that marine businesses suffer.

He added: "The great advantage of our new partnership visits is that the inspectors, between them, will be able to offer a wide range of expertise."

Earlier this week, Brendan Barber, general secretary of the Trades Union Congress, asserted that the workplace deaths which occur in the UK every year can be prevented with the use of safety measures, such as installing warning signs.
