Subject: Sauces firm prosecuted over forklift death

A sauces manufacturer has been prosecuted and fined £140,000 after a forklift truck driver was in a fatal work accident claim at their factory.

The work accident happened when the 45 year old was using his forklift truck to load a lorry trailer outside the factory when another lorry slowly reversed into the side of his forklift truck, tipping it over which killed the man instantly.

The company had not carried out adequate assessment of the risk to it’s employees. Drivers were also not given any information or training on the forklifts.
