Businesses in Shropshire have been advised on how they can protect workers after a number of work-related accidents were reported in the county.

Between April 2011 and March 2012, three workers were killed in the region, while major injuries were suffered by 220. This comes after three county firms faced large fines for accidents, leaving one man dead and two seriously injured.

Marvin Owen, chair of the IOSH Midlands West District, said: “If people realised that health and safety actually prevents accidents and fatalities, as well as cutting lost-time incidents, boosting attendance, and overall saving money, then surely they would risk assess their working environments to make sure risk is minimal.”

Mr Owen explained that, more often than not, companies feel they are being “bogged down” as a result of risk assessments.

He noted that risk assessments should be a help to businesses, instead of a hindrance.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801592072-ADNFCR
