Toddler injured by council staff

A three year old girl has been injured in her pushchair during a festival. The incident occurred following a collision between the stationary pushchair and a council operated park ranger’s vehicle.

Vehicle collides with pushchair

In an investigation led by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Mansfield Magistrates’ Court heard that Nottinghamshire County Council staff were using the light-weight vehicle to move around the festival so as to empty litter bins.

Two council staff were travelling in the vehicle when the collision with the stationary push chair occurred. The young girl inside the pushchair suffered bruising to her head and to her leg.

Previous warnings and fines

HSE had previously served Nottinghamshire Country Council with improvement notices relating to risk assessments. After being found guilty of breaching the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the council was fined £6,000 and was ordered to pay costs of £5,597
