Part of the boiler house at the

power station collapsed on 23
February during demolition work by
Coleman and Company, killing one
person, leaving three missing in the
wreckage and injuring five others.
In a statement, Coleman and
Company said the move was hugely disappointing. We have now
reached a stage where we will be handing over the remaining recovery
operation to another contractor within the next few weeks. This is of course
hugely disappointing as we all wanted to recover our friends and
colleagues and return them to their families, it said.

Travis Perkins fined 2 million

after customer run over in

From www.ioshmagazine.com - May

In November 2012, Mark John

Pointer was loading planks of wood
onto his Land Rover when he fell
backwards onto the yard surface
after the straps he was using
snapped. Amersham Crown Court
heard that the man was then run
over by the vehicle that was operating in the yard and died from crushing
injuries. Travis Perkins pleaded guilty to breaching sections 2(1) and 3(1) of
the Health and Safety at Work Act. As well as the fine they were ordered to
pay 114,813 in costs. The company had initially denied a link between the
offences and the death but had later conceded.


As we reported last week, Practical Car and Van Rental Chesterfield

contracted Sheffield-based Warburton Signs to install a large, lightweight
sign to the gable end of an industrial building. Three operators had been
assigned to the task and on 13 April 2015 they were fitting wooden batons
to the building, to which the sign would be fixed.

Workplace injuries can pose very real dangers in our daily jobs,
particularly when the task involves working high up on a building or other
structure. Safety statistics make for grim reading, with accidents on
building sites responsible for more than their proportionate share of all fatal
injuries at work. Sadly, many of these accidents are the results of a fall.

Stephen Hepburn MP has accused the HSE of failing to prosecute"

construction deaths, and for the delay in bringing companies to justice.
