Subject: 32 Year old male suffers serious injuries at work after platform collapses
A construction company has been sentenced for safety failings after a worker was seriously injured at work when a temporary platform collapsed.
The 32 year old male was involved in the work accident when he fell almost ten metres from an unstable platform and landed on concrete platform below. Since the work accident claim he required extensive treatment and physiotherapy, and has been left with limited movement in his right arm because of the elbow injury. He is no longer able to work in construction.
The company was fined £70,000 and ordered to pay £22,193 in costs.
