A company has been prosecuted and fined after an inspection revealed that a great many safety procedures were being completely ignored.

Sunbeam Wood Works Ltd was ordered to pay a £24,000 fine and £1,460 in costs for breaching Section 2(1) and Section 21 of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.

Its director, Stephen Morrison, was also prosecuted. He was ordered to pay an £8,000 fine for breaching Section 37 of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.

The inspection showed that Sunbeam employees were not provided with safety equipment for spraying paint, nor were they protected from noise.

It also failed to inform workers, through training or health and safety signs, of the dangers of inhaling chemicals during spraying.

Two improvement notices were served on the company, however it still made no effort to improve the safety of the workplace.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801667971-ADNFCR
