Expert: Safety signs matter in 2010

5th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

One expert has warned that health and safety signs and other precautions are a key priority in 2010, particularly in the east of England.

Last year there were 232 accidents which occurred in the region each week, many of which could have been prevented with the use of health and safety signs, and it is important that firms aim to take precautions, said Heather Bryant, regional director of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Overall, there were 2,049 accidents resulting in injury or death in the east of England in 2009 and she said that the cost to the country in sick days is another factor which must be recognised.

"Behind these statistics are the real-life stories of hundreds and thousands of people and families dealing with real hardship, pain and suffering. Many of these injuries are entirely preventable," she said.

Her comments were recently echoed by David Snowball, HSE's regional director for Yorkshire and the Humber, who urged companies to make safety signs and other precautions part of their new year's resolution.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19539393-ADNFCR
