Company Fined Following Death of Employee

A hire company based in Whitchurch has been prosecuted for safety failings following the death of an employee.

A court was told of how an employee of Arkenfield Stable Hire Limited (ASHL), Philip Ledward, suffered fatal injuries when he was hit by a passing car whilst guiding a reversing lorry driver (also an employee of ASHL).

An investigation into the incident by the Health and Safety Executive found that there was ‘no safe system of work in place for controlling risks from workplace transport.

Arkenfield Stable Hire Limited, of Birch House, Back Lane, Coton, Whitchurch pleaded guilty to an offence under Section 2 (1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. The company was fined a total of £7,500 and ordered to pay costs of £5,000.

HSE inspector Damian Corbett said the following after the hearing:

“Workplace transport continues to be a major cause of fatal and serious injury. Estimates suggest that up to one-third of all road traffic accidents involve someone who is at work at the time.”
