HSE PROSECUTION
MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC INJURED FROM FALLING FENCING
NOVEMBER 2014



A contractor has been fined for safety failings after a pensioner was seriously injured when a metal construction (Heras) fence collapsed and knocked her to the ground as she walked past a site in south east London.

The 91-year-old, fractured her hip and shoulder in the incident  in August 2012. She required a lengthy stay in hospital and now struggles with her mobility and independence.

Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard  the contractor was responsible for the fence in question as it surrounded a development he was working on to create flats and a commercial unit.
