Jaguar Land Rover Sentenced Over Safety Breaches

Jaguar Land Rover has been prosecuted by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) for breaches of Regulation 3(1) of the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

Employee Graham Begley lost his life after he became trapped between two ‘dies’ – two 24 tonne pieces of car manufacturing machinery – at the firm’s factory in Halewood, Merseyside in September 2011.

The death of Mr Begley prompted an investigation by the HSE, during which it was found that Jaguar Land Rover had failed to undertake suitable assessments of the risks exposed to employees regarding the ‘pre lift process prior to the lifting of dies’.

Liverpool Crown Court, however, accepted that this breach was not the cause of Mr Begley’s death.

Fines

After pleading guilty to safety breaches, Jaguar Land Rover Ltd. of Abbey Road, Whitely, Coventry was fined a total of £30,000 and agreed to contribute a sum of £20,000 towards HSE costs.

Mark Dawson, HSE head of North West operations, said after the hearing:

“A suitable risk assessment is an essential step in ensuring that the risks arising from work activities are properly controlled.

“This is particularly important where the work is hazardous and has the potential to result in serious harm.

“Employers are therefore reminded of their legal responsibility to identify the hazards and decide on the precautions that may be necessary.”
