Galvanising Firm Fined after Worker is Injured

Bradford based galvanising firm T & D Galvanising Ltd has been fined by the Health & Safety Executive after a worker sustained serious injuries.

Incident

In June 2015, Mr Ali Zada was using an overhead crane to lift a bundle of mesh panels when one of the lifting wires snapped on one side. The bundle of mesh panels swung and struck Mr Zada’s leg, knocking him to the floor.

Bradford Magistrate’s Court heard that previously there had been a number of incidents of loads falling from overhead cranes due to workpieces being moved and becoming loose or wire tires not being tied correctly. HSE investigators also found that employees had not been provided with sufficient information regarding the various safe methods of tying the wires or working load limits.

Sentencing

After pleading guilty to breaching Section 2 (1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, T & D Galvanising Ltd of Bowling Back Lane Bradford was fined a total of £9,000. The company was also ordered to pay costs of £1,379.

HSE inspector Andrea Jones said after the hearing:

“No checks were made to ensure that employees were aware and understood that wire ties should not be re-used after being dipped into the zinc tank.

“This accident could have had fatal consequences. Mr Zada was fortunate not to have received more serious injuries. This demonstrates the importance of planning lifting operations and training of employees to ensure safe methods are followed.”
