Three Employees Injured by Electric Cable

Electric services firm Cannock Electrical Services has been fined for safety failings after three employees were injured whilst carrying out the refurbishment of a building on Five Ways Island.

Incident

In February 2015, three workers were lowering an electric cable by hand, from the 20th floor of the Prominent Building, Hagley Road, to the basement. At one point the cable slipped and as it did so, the cable whipped round and struck all three employees.

One worker suffered minor injuries, whilst the second and third employee suffered a serious break to his leg and a fractured ankle.

Investigation & Prosecution

Following an investigation, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that supervision of the task was insufficient and that the initial planning for the work was inadequate. HSE’s investigation also found the method in which the work was carried out to be unsafe.

Cannock Electrical Services Limited, of Progress Business Centre, Brookfield Drive, Cannock, pleaded guilty to an offence under Regulation 13(2) of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007. The firm was fined the sum of £13,000 and ordered £587 in costs, along with a victim surcharge of £120.
