Traffic management failures leads to £80k fine

The employee of West Coast Corrugated Ltd was struck by a reversing clamp truck which resulted in him fracturing his pelvis at the company’s site in Deacon Park, Liverpool.

Manchester & Salford Magistrates’ Court heard that the HSE’s investigation found the company had failed to consider the risk created by vehicles and pedestrians operating in the same area.

Traffic management plan

The investigation also found the company failed to implement a traffic management plan to ensure workers and vehicles were adequately segregated. There was also a failure to install physical barriers to clearly segregate pedestrians and vehicles.

West Coast Corrugated Ltd of Hannover Street, Liverpool, Merseyside pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2(1) of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974. The company was fined £80,000 and ordered to pay £4,337.84 in costs.
