Safety signs 'can avert disaster'

2nd December 2009 | Warning Signs

Companies which use safety signs are much less likely to suffer a serious accident, one sector watchdog has pointed out. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) said that safety signs should always be used wherever an area of the premises may place employees or members of the public in danger. In addition, the organisation said that using safety signs can neutralise the potential legal ramifications of an accident occurring without a warning being in place, particularly if it is erected soon after the hazard becomes clear. "Safety notices are issued where, under certain circumstances, an unsafe situation could arise. For example, where instructions or labelling for use are not clear, additional guarding may be required," the HSE advised. The importance of safety signs was recently highlighted when the Farm Safety Health Awareness event took place in Scotland, informing members of the agricultural industry about the need to use warning notices.
