TJ Morris, a Runcorn company, was ordered to pay £30,000 in fines and costs after pleading guilty to health and safety failures following an accident at work that left two employees seriously injured.

They allowed two of their employees to attempt to hand-wind a stuck goods lift. The two individuals climbed a ladder and entered the motor room above the lift shaft, but the panel on which they were standing gave way. They both fell down the lift shaft and suffered serious personal injuries.

Runcorn Magistrates Court heard the firm had failed to limit access to the motor area to trained employees of contract lift engineers. It had also allowed employees to deal with intermittent lift breakdowns.

The prosecution was brought by Halton Council under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The company was fined £20,000 and ordered to pay £10,000 costs.
