David Watson Transport fined £150,000 after driver’s death 25 August 2015

Norfolk-based David Watson Transport has been sentenced for safety failings after a driver suffered life-changing injuries and later died.

Keith Brookes, from Milton Keynes, fell from an unsecured ladder during an operation to unload items from a truck at the Hertfordshire Golf and Country Club in November 2012.

The incident was investigated by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive), which prosecuted employer David Watson Transport, after finding the company had failed to properly safeguard workers from falls.

Norfolk-based David Watson Transport was fined a total of £150,000 and ordered to pay costs of £88,030.69 after being found guilty to three counts of the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
