Using safety signs 'should be a priority' in 2010

4th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

Firms should take adequate measures to ensure that employees are not put in harm's way in the coming months, such as using safety signs, it has been claimed.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has urged all companies to reduce the number of major injuries and deaths in UK workplaces in order to make 2010 a much safer year.

Last year there were almost 3,000 workplace injuries and 20 deaths in London alone, as measures such as installing safety signs were not taken and staff were put at risk.

Stephen Williams, the HSE's London regional director, commented: "HSE works with a number of partners to provide free advice and education to those both carrying out and managing work. We want businesses and the self-employed to work with us to help reduce injuries and make London a safer place to work."

The warning comes after Dr Paul Stollard, director for Scotland with the HSE, pointed out that many of the 26 workplace deaths which occurred across the country last year could have been prevented if precautionary measures were taken, such as installing safety signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19536577-ADNFCR
