Subject: Airbus fined £200,000 over worker’s fatal accident

An aeroplane manufacturer, named Airbus, has been fined £200,000 following the death of an employee who was crushed between a tractor and a fertiliser spreader at the firm’s plant.

The fatal accident at work occurred when the 62 year old, who worked in the maintenance department, was asked to fit a fertiliser spreader to the back of a tractor as part of a trial. As he did so, he became trapped in the tractor’s rear tyre. Although his colleagues managed to release him, he sadly later died in hospital from crush injuries.
