Warning signs 'a serious matter'

3rd December 2009 | Warning Signs

Putting measures in place to deal with the threat of workplace hazards is a very serious matter, one sector authority has stated. Geoffrey Podger, chief executive of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), made the claim in a letter of riposte to the Daily Mail. According to the expert, claims in the newspaper that the watchdog was spending too much money on investigations into accidents and how to prevent them was misguided and wide of the mark. He explained that it is imperative for firms to take precautionary measures, such as installing warning signs, to lower the number of avoidable deaths occurring. "It is absurd to suggest that [companies] should simply act without any proper considerations of the risks they are running and how they can be mitigated. This step is crucial to all our safety," Mr Podger wrote. His comments come after HSE inspector Roger Upfold recently said that warning signs should "always be used" wherever there is a danger to the health of staff or the public.
