Safety target.

Defence firm BAE Systems' Tyneside site is to take part in a pilot project which aims to promote high standards of safety for its 500 workers.

The company, which owns the former Vickers Plant in Scotswood Road, Newcastle, has linked up with the Health and Safety Executive.

It includes controlling the risks of working in confined spaces, risks of hand-arm vibration, falls and manual handling.

BAE Systems' director for corporate responsibility Deborah Allen said: "Maintaining high standards of safety performance is a key priority for our business."
