A construction company has been fined £50,000 (£20,000 for breaching health and safety regulations and also ordered to pay £30,000 in costs) after a work accident at a building site in Middlesex.
The company CET Group of Maidstone were fined at London Magistrates' Court after investigators discovered CET had not carried out a proper risk assessment before Mr Cousins was instructed to use the machinery. In addition, the drill was not fitted with adequate protection and its emergency stop button was faulty.
An action was brought by the Health and Safety Executive after 42-year-old Mark Cousins suffered injuries having been dragged into a lorry-mounted rotating drill as he dug a borehole for the company in March 2004.
Mr Cousins was left with a shattered forearm, a broken femur, a smashed humerus, damaged ribs and severe bruising as a result of the work accident. It is not known whether he will make a personal injury compensation claim against his former employers.
