Building firm fined over trench-collapse death
4 March 2011
A Buckinghamshire construction company has been fined £5,000 after a contractor died when a trench collapsed on him.
This recently reported story from SHP (Safety & Health Practitioner) is very sad and it really brings it home to us how easily a life can be lost due to lack of planning and no risk assessment. The lad who died is local to us (Leighton Buzzard) our thoughts are with the family.
