TUC has dismissed claims by David Cameron that businesses are in a "stranglehold" of health and safety red tape, which can affect how safety signage is installed.

Discussing the prime minister's claim, TUC said that it illustrates that 10 Downing Street is "out of touch" with modern work, and that many people are still being injured at work.

TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said: "The truth is that there are two million people in the UK who have an illness or injury caused by their work – the vast majority of which could have been prevented had their employer had taken the correct safety precautions."

In his original statement, Mr Cameron stated that he is hoping to tackle the compensation culture, alleviating fears that companies will be sued for trivial claims.

He also signalled his intent to investigate the demands of insurance companies.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801258479-ADNFCR
