Welsh first minister signs pledge to reduce workplace deaths

8th December 2009 | Health and Safety Signs

Rhodri Morgan, the first minister of Wales, has signed a pledge to reduce the number of workplace fatalities in the country, an aim which he said will be achieved by taking more preventative measures, such as installing safety signs.

The minister signed the agreement on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government in the hope that it will bring organisations together to reduce the number of work-related deaths, injuries and ill health.

Mr Morgan commented: "The fact that more than 1,600 people have suffered serious injuries in the workplace in the last year is shocking. Work-related accidents can be avoided and it is important that people are made to feel safe while going about their job."

He called on employers to take the appropriate action to avoid workplace deaths, such as ensuring safety signs are put up, to make the country a safer place to operate.

The pledge comes after a recent event hosted by IOSH Environmental and Waste Management Group involved the staging of a mock courtroom trial which was the result of an employer inadvertently causing the death of a worker by not using health and safety signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19501182-ADNFCR
