Failure to control transport risks results in life changing injuries for litter picker

Bin men  

Jack Moody Recycling Limited pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2 (1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and was fined £100,000 last week, after a worker was left with life changing injuries.

On 5 December 2014, whilst collecting litter on a composting site in Telford, an employee was struck by a moving shovel loader.  Both his legs were amputated just below the knees, resulting in life changing injuries.

It is vital that sites have proper risk management in place when pedestrians and transport are working closely together.  Those using transport on waste & recycling sites should remind themselves of the relevant WISH guidance on safe use of transport on sites  Waste 09  and  WASTE 18 and check that sites are operating legally and safely.

HSE is currently in the middle of targeting the sector with an inspection initiative that will look at safe use of transport amongst other activities to ensure effective management and control of risk.
