Warning signs 'must be used' in 2010

4th January 2010 | Warning Signs

Companies should make safety a priority in the coming year and install safety signs and similar precautionary measures to prevent deaths in the workplace, one sector specialist has said.

David Snowball, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) regional director in West Yorkshire, said that the number of people dying in workplace accidents in the UK, although continuing to fall, is still far too high.

He pointed out that firms should turn over a new leaf in 2010, as installing warning signs and similar measures can help to stop serious accidents and fatalities.

"We should pause to reflect as a new year arrives on the number of incidents in the past 12 months and what we can do to stop the pattern repeating," Mr Snowball said.

Meanwhile, the HSE recently revealed that there were 106 injuries per 100,000 workers in 2008-09, highlighting the need to take precautions such as installing warning signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19536578-ADNFCR
