Woodworking firm fined over safety breach

Leeds Magistrates’ Court heard that, in August 2012, a fork-lift truck was working closely with two pedestrians during a lifting operation. It hit a stack of boards which knocked into one worker, who then fell onto a second stack, which fell on a second worker. One employee broke both his legs.

The Health and Safety Executive investigated and prosecuted Spa Laminates Limited, of Pepper Road, Leeds. It pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. It was fined £8,000 and ordered to pay £7,438 costs.
