Local Contractor - Dumper Truck Fine

HSE logoA local contractor in Northamptonshire has been fined after a six-tonne dumper truck ran over a worker's foot.

Lincoln Magistrates' Court heard that Maypine Construction was main contractor on the job where Ross Smith (23) and a colleague were filling the roadway with stone, in preparation for surfacing.

The HSE said: "Many construction transport incidents are usually the result of inadequate separation of pedestrians and vehicles, and by inadequate control of vehicle movements on site."
