Majority of bosses 'unconcerned' about health and safety signs

4th March 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

A worryingly large proportion of business managers are failing to make health and safety a top priority, according to new research published yesterday (March 3rd).

Insurance firm Premierline conducted a study which found that just 37 per cent of bosses believe health and safety measures - such as safety signs - are important.

Meanwhile, 86 per cent said they consider profit growth to be crucial, which suggests that the majority are more concerned with their bottom lines than their employees' wellbeing.

In addition, the survey revealed similar failings among small and medium enterprises, with 67 per cent admitting that they do not currently have a health and safety policy.

Premierline also noted that almost four-fifths (78 per cent) of firms which have implemented such policies have not reviewed them in the past year.

Last month, a man who suffered a broken hip and a fractured wrist in a fall at work in July 2006 urged employers to focus on the importance of warning signs.
