Health and safety push for Saltash industrial estates

8th February 2011 | Health and Safety Signs

Health and safety signage may be part of a crackdown on poor workplace safety practices at industrial estates in the town of Saltash.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be making visits to as many as 100 firms in the Tamar View, Gilston Road, Parkway and Moorlands estates from next Monday February 14th.

Some of the issues inspectors will be looking at include slip, trip and fall hazards, machinery safety, manual handling, storage of chemicals and training for younger workers.

Health and safety signs may prove useful in effectively implementing safe working procedures for such measures.

Businesses on the four estates comprise a range of work activities - including vehicle repair, woodworking, printing and courier services.

"Industrial estates are a hive of activity and if health and safety is not managed properly an accident could halt that work, resulting in lost productivity but even worse maybe a death of a worker," said Rob Pearce, principal inspector of health and safety at Plymouth.

"This inspection initiative will enable us to assess how well companies are managing health and safety and to offer practical guidance on particular issues."
