Three companies fined a total of £1.5 Million for causing life changing injuries

Three Teesside based companies were fined a total of £1.5 Million and ordered to pay £68,000 costs following the injury of an inspection engineer during a pressure test.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) prosecuting told the court, that a valve on a pressure test rig was pressurised above the safe working limit and failed, causing the hose and metal fitting assembly to whip round, striking the injured man on the right leg, causing serious compound fractures.
