Company fined after worker seriously injured

Leicester Crown Court heard how a 41-year-old employee of Veolia ES (UK) Limited of London, was sweeping up around the base of stacks of baled waste at their site in Castle Donnington, when a stack collapsed on him.

He sustained serious head and brain injuries including a fractured eye socket, back and skull.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) into the incident found that the company did not identify the risks of inconsistent stacking and de-stacking of baled waste, or the simple controls to manage it.

Veolia ES (UK) Limited, of Pentonville Road, London, was fined a total of £450,000, with costs of £11,676 after pleading guilty to an offence under Regulation 10(4) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
