With health and safety provisions so paramount, these dreadful accidents are thankfully less frequent than they used to be. Some media reports will claim that health and safety has gone too far – yet accidents like this do still happen. That is why the health and safety culture, albeit much criticised, is so important and must not be watered down.

The company responsible for this dreadful accident were fined £70,000 but are now insolvent and there seems to be no hope of the £70,000 fine being anything more than a warning to others.

I hope that the company did at least hold the compulsory employer's liability insurance which, whilst no consolation at all, will mean that the family will receive some financial compensation for their terrible loss.
