New health and safety boss highlights importance of warning signs

8th January 2010 | Warning Signs

A new senior figure with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has reiterated the importance of using warning signs.

Mark Dawson, the new principal inspector for Cumbria with the organisation, said it remains imperative that companies use precautions, such as installing warning signs, in order to keep accidents to a minimum.

Mr Dawson's role will involve ensuring that firms across the region are doing their upmost to protect those in their employment and he will lead a team of inspectors in Carlisle and Preston particularly, who will aim to eliminate fatalities.

"We're here to offer advice and guidance to local businesses so I hope they'll come to us to ask for help when they need it. We'll also continue to take action against companies who ignore health and safety laws," he said.

The importance of using warning signs was recently reiterated by Pam Waldron, the HSE's north-east head of operations, who said that failing to take precautions can lead to lives being lost or severely impaired.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19546768-ADNFCR
