North-east safety statistics 'a stark reminder' to use safety signs

7th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

New statistics reveal that there were still thousands of workplace accidents in the north-east last year, illustrating the importance of health and safety signs.

According to the figures, which were issued by sector watchdog the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the north-east saw an average of 122 accidents a week from 2008-09, with 6,318 in total.

Pam Waldron, the HSE's north-east head of operations, said that the figures illustrate how important it is to use precautions such as health and safety signs to stop lives from being torn apart.

"Every employee has the right to return home from work safely and without their health affected and I hope all employers in the north-east share that view and take steps to ensure that is the case," she said.

Her comments follow those of Heather Bryant, the HSE's east of England regional director, who pointed out that any firms not taking the necessary precautions to protect workers, such as installing safety signs, will be prosecuted.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19544346-ADNFCR
