In February of this year, bus company Go Ahead London were fined £600,000 after a workman died following a fall from a ladder. The HSE investigation found that the company failed to implement and keep to their own procedures for managing contractors.
Speaking after the hearing, HSE inspector, Neil Fry, said, “This is a tragic case which could have been entirely preventable; if the company had managed their contractors effectively then the worker would have returned home safely from work.”
