Construction company fined £700,000

A construction company fined £700,000 after an employee died after being run over by a dumper truck whilst changing over a blade on a piece of work equipment at the side of a roadway.  An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that the company had failed to adequately assess the risks to their employees whilst they were repairing and replacing equipment. They failed to provide a system of work in relation to this task which defined a place or places where such work could be carried out safely and which segregated people from vehicles.
