Making safety your New Year’s resolution...
The writing’s on the wall for poor health and safety practices, and we’ve brought out a new series of free downloadable posters to ensure that work at height safety is always front of mind for our customers.
With a style inspired by vintage RoSPA designs and featuring figures in a range of precarious situations, the posters cover key health and safety issues such as the importance of wearing a properly attached harness when working at height, wearing a high visibility jacket, and why it is so important ensure that the ground quality is always thoroughly checked before any working at height takes place.
We'll be publishing one every month this year. The first WAH safety poster in the series reminds us to make sure our harness is attached to the cage - working at height is as safe as working on the ground as long as you are properly trained and follow the required safety procedures. The posters are inspired by the classic safety posters of the past, and are designed to have a simple memorable message. The posters feature powerful illustrations by London based illustrator Stephen Harnwell Jones.
Jane Lawrence of Facelift, commented: “The number of serious accidents caused by not following the correct health and safety procedures shows that many people still need to be reminded of what steps they need to follow to stay safe on site.
“We hope our posters make the consequences of not managing health and safety clear without being too stuffy, and will be of great use to our customers.”
