Protective measures like safety boots still vital, research suggests

Businesses should maintain their health and safety standards despite the recession, a firm suggests, which may lead some to consider the importance of things like personal protective equipment and safety boots.

According to a recent survey by Aviva Risk Management Solutions (ARMS), 90 per cent of firms polled have a dedicated employee focusing solely on health and safety issues.

The company now believes that businesses should maintain these standards and should not be tempted to reduce their spending during the economic downturn.

Kevin Chicken, training and consultancy manager at ARMS, believes that external consultants could also be used to help companies assess their current safety requirements.

He said: 'In an effort to cut costs, spending on health and safety may be severely reduced, particularly among small and medium-sized businesses.

'We would recommend that every business has a fully-qualified competent person that is solely dedicated to health and safety issues.'

The Health and Safety Executive works with construction firms to ensure that adequate protection equipment, such as safety boots and gloves, is used when appropriate.
