Subject: 18 Year old worker injured in warehouse
A company has been prosecuted after an 18 year old was left injured when a 1.5 tonne pallet toppled on to him, trapping his legs.
The man was unloading pallets when a double-stacked pallet fell over. It was believed that the company had operated a dangerous system of work for unloading the pallets for a considerable time and failed to provide workers with the right equipment to do the job safely. He spent three days in hospital following the accident.
The company had ignored warnings that the system was unsafe for a long period of time and were fined £6,000 and ordered to pay £4,994.
