Using health and safety signs 'may save hundreds of lives'

17th February 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

An event being held in Kent will highlight how the use of workplace precautions such as health and safety signs can potentially save hundreds of lives.

The Health and Safety Executive has invited hundreds of farmers from Surrey, Kent and Sussex to attend a symposium in Tonbridge intended to reduce the number of accidents involving farmers across the three counties.

Mike Walters, principal inspector for the HSE in Kent, said that the event will hopefully prevent the one death a week which occurs in the UK's agricultural sector.

"This event is bringing together farmers from Surrey, Sussex and Kent to make them more aware of the day to day risks they face with the ultimate aim of saving lives and preventing future accidents," he said.

Yesterday (February 17th), an event held in Stornoway educated fish farmers about how using precautions such as warning signs can help to reduce accidents in the workplace.
