Fine imposed over Corby work accident


A construction company has been fined £15,000 over a forklift accident that occurred during building work on Corby's Willow Place shopping centre.

In 2007, a worker had been carrying a piece of plasterboard when a telehandler reversed over him, whose driver did not realise initially that a work accident had occurred. The work injury victim suffered broken and dislocated bones, flesh wounds, and has not returned to work two years on. No report has been made of his intentions to appoint a no win, no fee solicitor to handle a compensation claim.

The construction firm pleaded guilty to charges of failing to take measures to prevent work accidents from occurring. An HSE executive described the forklift accident as "very serious and preventable" and noted that the firm had been warned previously about transport routes on the site.
