Welsh firm fined after worker crush death
A Welsh firm has been fined after an incident in which a worker was crushed to death, highlighting the need for health and safety signs.
Macob Administration, based in Bridgend, was ordered to pay £40,000 after an employee died during an incident at a construction site in Gloucestershire in February 2005.
The accident occurred when a worker was driving a mini digger and unintentionally hit a lever as he leaned out of the cab window, resulting in the arm crushing his head against the side of cab.
Speaking after the hearing, Martin Lee, an inspector for the Health and Safety Executive, commented: "This terrible incident highlights the extremely serious risks posed by equipment and vehicles on sites if the workers using them don't have adequate training or are not versed in safe working procedures."
Recently, Leicester company AM Widdowson & Son of Mill Lane Industrial Estate was fined after it created a potentially deadly fire risk at its premises, illustrating the need for fire signs.
