Leeds Based Woodworking Firm Prosecuted for Safety Breach

An incident in which stacks of wooden boards fell onto and injured two employees at a woodworking firm in Leeds has led to the company receiving a fine for safety breaches from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The incident took place in August 2012 whilst two pedestrian workers were working closely with a fork lift truck during a lifting operation.

The forklift knocked a stack of boards, causing the boards to strike one worker. This individual then fell onto a second stack of boards, causing this second stack to fall onto another worker. During the incident one of the employees broke both of his legs.

After an investigation by the HSE, Spa Laminates Limited, of Pepper Road, Leeds was prosecuted for safety breaches at Leeds Magistrates’ Court. The firm pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety Act 1974 and received a fine of £8,000, the firm was also ordered to pay a total of £7,438 in legal costs.
