Environmental services company fined £30,000

A Lancashire based environmental services company has been fined £30,000 with £4,500 in costs after a worker suffered serious injuries when his arm was crushed in a conveyor. HSE’s investigation found that no suitable and sufficient risk assessment had been carried out to identify the risks from the rollers. There was no suitable isolation process or guarding in place, and no safe system of work for cleaning the rollers
