Tom Gent represents a £6 million turnover business for breach of the Electricity at Work Regulations

Tom Gent recently represented a £6 million turnover quarry business that had been prosecuted for breach of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and a breach of the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995.

Following an earlier incident that had not been reported, a delivery driver had allowed his tipper to make contact with overhead electric power lines at the quarry. The in-cab alarm in his vehicle had failed to sound, but thankfully he remained in his cab and did not suffer injury.

The HSE accepted a plea to one offence on a limited basis and, following argument, principally in relation to the likelihood of harm eventuating, the Company were sentenced to a £50,000 fine.
