Scottish firms urged to use health and safety signs

29th December 2009 | Health and Safety Signs

Companies across Scotland have been urged to use precautions such as health and safety signs in order to reduce the number of people dying in workplace accidents.

Last year there were 26 deaths across Scotland and over 222 injuries which could have been avoided with the use of safety precautions, such as health and safety signs.

Dr Paul Stollard, director for Scotland with the Health and Safety Executive, said it is crucial that companies safeguard staff by not taking shortcuts and ensuring measures are in place to prevent accidents.

He commented: "Many of these injuries are entirely preventable. We implore businesses to take practical action to manage the risks people face in their day-to-day work."

The importance of using health and safety signs was recently highlighted by Andrew Penman and Nick Sommerlad, writing in the Mirror, who said that the 180 deaths a year occurring in UK workplaces is still 180 too many.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19531531-ADNFCR
