Newport Magistrates’ Court heard how on, 5 May 2017, an employee of Freight Movement Limited was seriously injured when a pallet loaded with 920kg of cardboard packaging toppled from a forklift and landed on him. The driver suffered multiple fractures and internal injuries.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found a lack of segregation between vehicles and pedestrians, inadequate safe waiting zones for drivers, lack of control over vehicle movements and an absence of safe walkways.

 

The company failed to critically consider the main risks of its busy transport operation and ensure there was adequate control of transport risks at the site.

Freight Movement Limited of Wern Industrial Estate, Rogerstone, Newport pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and Regulation 3(1)(a) of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and has been fined £84,000 and ordered to pay costs of £5,633.69.
