Firm Fined after Two Workers are Seriously Injured

A company responsible for the manufacture of vehicle bodies has been fined following an incident in which two workers were seriously injured.

Incident

On 12 January 2015, a third worker was attempting to move a vehicle weighing 18 tonnes when the other two employees became trapped between the moving vehicle and two stationary vehicles. One worker suffered severe crush injuries to his legs while the other worker suffered internal bladder and kidney injuries, as well as fractures to his ribs and pelvis. Another employee involved in the incident managed to move out of the way & did not sustain any injuries.

Investigation & fines

Following an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive, it was found that the company had not identified or assessed transport risks within the workplace. Furthermore, it was found that the company had failed to put safe systems of work and protective measures in place, as well as failing to ensure employee pedestrian safety whilst vehicles were in motion.

After pleading guilty to breaching Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, Commercial Body Specialists Limited, of High Street, Tunstall, Stoke on Trent was fined £20,000 and ordered to pay costs of £4,461.
