Health and safety important in Scotland, safety gloves users told

Scottish firms should aim to meet high standards of health and safety in the coming 12 months, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) believes.

The year 2009 saw more than 11,500 of the country's workers hurt or even killed because of events relating to their line of work, the body has highlighted.

Construction firms looking to protect the wellbeing of their staff through the use of equipment such as safety gloves may be interested to hear the view of the HSE's director for Scotland Dr Paul Stollard.

Dr Stollard suggests that a number of the workplace injuries that occur in Scotland could be avoided.

'In Scotland, the industries with most deaths and injuries are agriculture, quarrying and construction.'

He went on to say: 'HSE is determined to reduce this tragic toll.'

Meanwhile, last month the organisation noted some of the health and safety myths that appear during the festive period.
