Safety signs 'a commonsense approach'

22nd January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

Displaying health and safety signs is not only advisable, but shows a commonsense approach which should be heeded by all organisations, one sector watchdog has stated.

Heather Bryant, regional director for the south-east with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), said that people who trivialise health and safety are generally those who do not know the correct rules and how they can help to prevent accidents and even save lives.

"The HSE campaigns actively for safer and healthier workplaces. Much of the damage that is done by others in the name of health and safety displays a lack of common sense," she explained.

Ms Bryant added that those in doubt about the importance of health and safety signs should consult statistics showing the number of people injured at work every year.

Meanwhile, Essex firm Air Livery has been fined £2,400 for breaching regulations and ordered to pay costs of £9,162.54 at Bristol magistrates court after a worker slipped off a plane and broke his elbow, illustrating the need for health and safety signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19572226-ADNFCR
