St John's Ambulance calls on companies to guarantee health and safety

St John's Ambulance has urged organisations in Wirral to guarantee that their workers receive adequate health and safety training, which may lead to more companies installing warning signs.

The guidance has been given ahead of Falls Awareness Week next Monday (June 20th). This initiative could be particularly important as the charity found that 152 deaths occurred in workplaces during 2009 and 2010, according to the Wirral Globe.

Alex Swift, north-west regional director for St John Ambulance, said: "Health and safety issues can be daunting for smaller businesses, especially when faced with the prospect of dealing with risk assessment, protocols and legal obligations."

The repercussions of not handling health and safety issues can also be immense in regards to the health of employees and the finances of companies.

Organisations that enforce reliable health and safety measures could also be in line for awards, after the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service collected a health and safety accreditation from the British Standards Institution. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800581314-ADNFCR
