An Exeter based airline fined £100,000

An Exeter based airline was fined £100,000 and ordered to pay £9,963 after an employee fell into the lift shaft to the bottom floor and suffered injuries. An investigation by HSE (Health and Safety Executive) found that the lift doors had a fault which meant that they defaulted to locked. As a result, the emergency door release key was being routinely used by employees to bypass the fault and therefore the lift’s safety devices.
