Farm prosecuted following death of young worker

The 23 year-old from Lincolnshire sustained fatal injuries during the incident at Park Farm, Gainsborough.

Lincoln Crown Court heard how the young worker was alone at the farm at the weekend when his dumper truck got struck in a pile of manure. He was using the truck to transport cattle manure from the sheds to a large pile in the field. As he drove the fully laden truck up the manure heap it became stuck.

The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) investigation found that the handbrake had not been applied to the telehandler. It’s thought the worker was using a telehandler to free the dumper truck and when he was bending down to attach the two vehicles, the telehandler rolled forward and crushed him.

Lincoln Proteins Limited (formerly known as GH By-Products Limited), Windsor House, A1 Business Park, Long Bennington, Northamptonshire, was fined £66,000 and ordered to pay costs of £25,286 after pleading guilty to breaching Section 2 of Health and Safety at Work Act.
