Sheffield steel company has been fined £450,000

A Sheffield steel company has been fined £450,000 with £32,099 costs following an incident when a  worker fell into an open pit, injuring his kidney and ribs.  An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found a risk assessment had been completed by Tata Steel UK Limited in October 2012, sixteen months before the incident, which had identified the need to provide a barrier round the pit when the floor plates had been removed to empty the skip. A barrier was not provided round the pit until after the incident occurred.
