Offshore sector should share health and safety experience

3rd February 2012 | Warning Signs

Firms involved in the UK's offshore and wind sector should share their health and safety knowledge in order to help the entire sector, one group believes.

Managers in the industry should look for safety in numbers as a means of ensuring that hazards are understood and regulations are complied with, a spokeswoman from RenewableUK has claimed.

Maria McCaffery, chief executive of the trade body, said at the group's Health and Safety 2012 conference: "Safety is not a competitive or contentious issue in this sector. An incident doesn't just hurt the company affected, it hurts us all, but if we all learn from their experience then we will be greater than the sum of our parts."

Later this month, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will offer safety advice to construction workers across Argyll and the Western Isles, which could cause firms to adopt new warning signs.

HSE inspectors will work alongside members of the construction industry in order to offer practical advice on injury prevention on February 14th.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801283160-ADNFCR
