Recession 'has not diminished emphasis on construction signs'

25th November 2009 | Construction Signs

The recession has not lead members of the construction industry to place less emphasis on warning signs and other health and safety measures, new research suggests.

A study by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) found 85 per cent of professionals working in these industries believe that the downturn has not affected compliance.

More than two thirds report that their company takes health and safety extremely serious, with an additional quarter revealing that, while their firm holds this attitude, it is not its top priority.

Michael Brown, deputy chief executive of the CIOB, claims that the research is encouraging, which could interest those considering construction signs.

He states: "Health and safety is being taken as seriously as it should be even in this difficult time, and … it is being resourced correctly."

Earlier this week, two firms operating in the sector were fined following an accident involving scaffolding in Milton Keynes which resulted in the death of a man and left two other employees with serious injuries, highlighting the importance of adequate health and safety precautions.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19478005-ADNFCR
