Recycling company fined after worker crushed

Newport Magistrates’ Court heard how a Recresco Limited employee was injured when the door’s roller barrel fell on him resulting in three cracked ribs and a damaged spleen, causing him to miss eight weeks of work.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) into the incident found that none of the electronically operated roller shutter doors at the company’s site had been adequately maintained to keep the equipment safe.

Recresco Limited of Springvale Industrial Estate, Cwmbran have pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2 (1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and have been fined £50,000 and ordered to pay costs of £9944.
