HSE to inspect workplaces in BradfordPosted on 17/10/2008
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has announced plans to inspect a number of workplaces based in Bradford.
From October 20th, the organisation will be carrying out an initiative in the city to ensure that a variety of firms are working to ensure that employees are protected from any risks.
The inspection of safety standards, which may touch upon the use of personal protective equipment, will also highlight what health and safety measures firms are legally required to implement.
Chris Flint, the HSE's principal inspector for the Bradford area, said: 'This is an important initiative which involves partners working together to really make a difference to a local area.
'Companies will be given all the support they need to turn their workplaces into safer, healthier working environments.'
The HSE recently warned firms to ensure that workers are adequately protected from high noise levels.
Judith McNulty-Green, an inspector for the body, made the call after a company in Lincoln was fined for failing to reduce the level of machinery noise its workers were exposed to.
