Next phase of HSE safety campaign is underway

26th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched the next phase of its Make the Promise campaign, which aims to make agricultural workers more aware of the importance of using precautions, such as safety signs.

According to the organisation, 38 people working in the industry lost their lives in accidents last year and it is aiming to prevent a rise in fatalities by illustrating how essential it is to take measures to stop them occurring.

Judith Donovan, HSE board member and its agriculture champion, pointed out that 15,000 farmers have already signed up to take part in the initiative.

"Losing concentration or taking seemingly harmless shortcuts is when horrific accidents can happen. To those farmers yet to make the promise, we encourage them to do it not only for themselves, but for their family and their livelihoods," she said.

Heather Bryant, regional director for the south-east with the HSE, has said that a commonsense approach to health and safety, such as installing warning signs, would ensure that less people are injured.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19577645-ADNFCR
