HSE target West Yorkshire

More than 70 firms across West Yorkshire have been told to make safety improvements to protect their workers after an intensive two-week inspection initiative.

Flammable liquids not being stored properly, missing or inadequate guards around machines and uncontrolled exposure to fumes from welding, were some of the hazards identified by the HSE officers who visited nearly 450 companies across Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield

Eight of the visits resulted in Prohibition Notices being served – meaning dangerous activities had to be stopped and action taken before work was allowed to continue.

In addition 63 premises were served with Improvement Notices that require businesses to correct or improve failings within a given timescale or risk further enforcement action.

One firm in Kirklees is under further investigation and could be prosecuted as a result of the serious dangers uncovered by Inspectors.
