Warning signs 'can prevent ear damage'

11th January 2010 | Warning Signs

An upcoming event will highlight the importance of using warning signs in the workplace to prevent ear damage.

Hosting a function at the Ricoh Arena on March 2nd, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will warn attendees of the importance of installing warning signs to remind workers of the importance of ear protection, particularly those using heavy-duty machinery.

According to the organisation, warning signs and other precautions can help to stop construction workers from suffering from hearing problems or even going deaf.

"It provides an opportunity for local authorities, housing providers, mediation services and all those involved in neighbour noise management to raise awareness of services available and promote practical solutions," the HSE said.

The importance of using warning signs was recently illustrated by an accident in Northumberland in which an untrained employee overturned a telehandler and received serious injuries, including multiple fractures to his right arm, while his employer was fined £4,500.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19549156-ADNFCR
