Quarry group 'could highlight importance of health and safety signs'

2nd November 2009 | Construction Signs

The importance of health and safety signage could be emphasised by a newly-assembled group of specialist inspectors who will be working at reducing accidents at quarries and open-cast mines.

The Health and Safety Executive has established the five-strong team to advise, inspect and enforce regulations for these companies.

Dr Pete Stollard, the HSE's director for Scotland, highlights the risks that these sites present people and emphasises the importance of taking actions to address these, which could include the implementation of health and safety signage.

He states: "The new team's main aim will be to work with the industry to help make it safer for those working on site, to bring about a long-term reduction in the number of accidents."

The HSE reports that it has reduced the total number of accidents in the industry by 55 per cent since 2000, although it states that it remains one of the most dangerous sectors to work in.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19438472-ADNFCR
