Serious injuries in an accident at work were suffered by a trainee electrician employee in Plympton, Plymouth. The eighteen year old, employed by CL Electrical Solutions Ltd, was helping to replace light bulbs in a warehouse factory ceiling at HT Gardner Distribution Ltd.
A forklift truck was being used to get around the warehouse enabling the employee to then reach the ceiling. The forklift had a cage fitted which the employee, Tom Davis, was in, it was being driven by a colleague.
The workplace forklift truck accident happened when it toppled over whilst they were working and caused severe injuries, including a fractured pelvis along with facial injuries.
The Health and SafetyExecutive (HSE) carried out investigations and it was found that the cage fitted to the forklift was not suitable for the job and that the trainee electricians had not had any formal training on using forklift trucks.
The two companies were both fined for breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act.
