Construction firm fined after accident at workRSS Feed
A construction company has been hit with a fine following a serious accident at work that left a man in danger of losing his foot.
Paul Daniels, 50, was working for CJL Construction in Somerset in September 2010 when he was hit by a forklift truck.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigated the case and launched a prosecution against the firm. It has now been fined £10,000.
Mr Daniels endured shattered bones in addition to almost losing his foot. At the time of the incident, he was working in Langport to install drainage systems on a row of new houses.
HSE inspector Annette Walker stated: "This was now over a year ago and he has required further operations and treatment and is still unable to return to work."
Partner at JD and RL Spalton David Spalton is another to have recently been brought to justice by the HSE, as he was fined £2,500 for his part in an accident in which a farm hand lost his right eye.
