Workplace equipment provider Slingsby believes many businesses are risking prosecution by not having sufficient safety signs in place despite them being one of the cheapest and easiest ways of preventing workplace acc
Lee Wright, marketing director of Slingsby, says: "Safety signs are cheap, quick and easy to introduce and are one of the simplest and most effective ways of warning employees of potential hazards or risks. However we regularly visit organisations where employees could injure themselves because the correct signs are not in place.
"Generally signs that contain just text are not permitted. Instead they must also include a pictogram and be a specific shape and colour depending on the sign's meaning."
