Kent waste management company fined £400,000

A Kent waste management company has been fined £400,000 after an employee suffered life changing injuries.  The injured employee was working as banksman, assisting a lorry to manoeuvre into a bay when a shovel loader reversed out of the bay, knocking him to the ground and driving over the lower half of his body. An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that the company had failed to organise the workplace in such a way that pedestrians and vehicles could circulate in a safe manner.
