Waste company fined after worker run over

Mold Crown Court heard how the worker was walking across the yard at the Bryn Posteg Landfll site in Llanidloes, when they were hit by a large shovel loader. The worker suffered severe injuries and needed both legs amputated at the mid-thigh and was hospitalised for six-months.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found the company did not have any controls in place to protect workers from the high volume of vehicles and traffic on site. Although they had previously identified the risk and how they could prevent workers being hit by vehicles they did not put the measures in places.

Sundorne Products (Llanidloes) Limited, part of the Potter Group, in Henfaes lane, Welshpool, Powys pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2 and Section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work (1974) Act and were fined £180,000 and ordered to pay costs of £7,657.10.
