Staffordshire company fined £265,000 following FLT incidents

A Staffordshire logistics company has been fined £265,000 and ordered to pay £14,943 costs after two employees were injured in two days. Both incidents resulted from fork lift truck operations. The investigation carried out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that fork lift truck operators and their supervisors were not properly trained and the risk assessments in place were poor. The investigation also found that there was inadequate segregation of pedestrians and vehicles.
