HSE Prosecute Cambridge Construction Firm for Injury to Worker

Cambridge Crown Court heard how Mead Construction (Cambridge) Limited was making a sewer connection from a domestic property at Hop Row, Haddenham to the main sewer. A worker was driving a skip loader, tipping spoil onto a spoil heap when the vehicle overturned trapping his leg.

He suffered fractures to his right ankle and sprained ligaments.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) into the incident found that there was a failure to plan, manage and monitor work using a skip loader, including allowing an untrained employee to use the vehicle whilst not wearing a seatbelt.

Mead Construction (Cambridge) Limited, of Heath Road, Swaffham Prior, Cambridgeshire pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 13(2) of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, and Regulation 9(1) of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 and was fined £40,000 and ordered to pay costs of £5,787.
