Waste management company fined £500,000

A Brighton-based waste collection and recycling company has fined £500,000 and ordered to pay £6,000 costs after a worker died after being struck by a reversing telehandler.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found the company had failed to address the management of large vehicle movements on its site and had not carried out an on-site health and safety inspection. In addition, the driver of the telehandler involved in the incident had not received any training in operating this vehicle.
