Construction Company Fined after Worker is Injured

A construction firm based in Cambridge has been prosecuted following an incident in which a worker was injured by a skip loader.

On 4 February 2015, a worker for Mead Construction (Cambridge) Limited was driving a skip loader during the implementation of a sewer connection at a domestic property, when the skip over turned and crushed his leg. The worker suffered sprained ligaments and multiple fractures to his right ankle.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that there had been multiple failures on the company’s part, including allowing an untrained worker to use the skip loader. The worker was also not wearing a seatbelt.

After pleading guilty to breaching Regulation 13(2) of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, and Regulation 9(1) of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, Mead Construction (Cambridge) Limited, of Heath Road, Swaffham Prior, Cambridgeshire was fined £40,000. The company was also ordered to pay costs of £5,787.
