Subject: 21 Year old male crushed to death by skip at work

A skip hire firm have been ordered to pay £80,000 in fines and costs after a 21 year old worker was crushed to death at work.

The tragic death at work happened when the 21 year old was using a vehicle called a skid steer loader to move rubbish when the work place accident happened. His body was discovered just after midnight after the owner of a neighbouring business noticed the gates to the site were still open. He had suffered massive rear head injuries.

The firm had bought the second-hand skid steer loader at an auction, but had failed to ensure its safety features were working correctly. They were fined £80,000 and ordered to pay £19,000 in prosecution costs.
