UK quarry fined for ignoring H&S advice

D P Williams Holdings Limited, of Brookside Works, The Nant, Rhydymwyn, Mold, pleaded guilty to continued non-compliance with relevant legislation, despite being warned previously by the health and safety watchdog.

The quarrying company was fined $7,700 (£5,000) with costs of $3,800 (£2,500) after admitting to breaches regulations.

The court heard though no one had been injured, the firm was issued with two Prohibition Notices and four Improvement Notices by Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspectors over a period of December 2009 to September 2013 relating to dangerous working conditions at the quarry.

The court also heard the company had previously ignored advice from its own quarry manager and geotechnical specialist about working conditions at the quarry.
