MANCHESTER, England, March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Accident Claims Solicitor First Personal Injury has praised the latest phase of the Health and Safety Executive's Shattered Lives safety campaign.
The latest phase of the campaign aims to raise awareness of the potential dangers of trips and falls in the workplace and features some graphic and hard hitting posters. The posters, typically featuring alarming images of workers 'shattering' upon impact following a fall, also feature safety information targeted at reducing such accidents.
Michael Jefferies of First Personal Injury believes the campaign has great potential for success. "The latest phase of Shattered Lives really hits a message home hard. The images are quite disturbing, yes, but sometimes that's exactly what it takes to get a point across. Given the number of workplace accident victims we deal with here, we know how devastating slips and trips at work can be. What's great about this campaign is that it uses graphics to convey that and then also provides the information people need to cut the numbers of injuries like this."
And indeed the campaign is rich in information, with the Shattered Lives area of the HSE website offering a whole host of resources including industry specific posters for download, hazard spotting checklists and information kits.
Michael, who has previously spoken of his wish to see more Health and Safety resources available to employees, is keen to see the HSE build on this. "What is available is fantastic. There's no denying that. But I honestly believe that building on this with some form of compulsory course for employees would make a really notable difference to the figures."
