    Safety checks ordered at Mini plant after worker suffers injury

    Safety checks ordered at Mini plant after worker suffers injury

    Logistics company Rudolph and Hellmann Automotive Limited has been ordered to perform safety checks after a worker was seriously injured in an accident at the Mini plant. The plant, based in Cowley, was the scene of a serious incident in October 2014.

    A man thought to be in his 50s was involved in a serious accident there. No further details have been released, but he was transported to the John Radcliffe Hospital for treatment.

    Cases like these where one or more workers receive serious injuries usually result in an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive as a matter of course. These investigations will determine whether there was any negligence involved in the accident. They are also conducted whenever fatalities occur, or whenever a serious incident occurs where someone could have been injured.

    Prohibition and improvement notices granted

    The HSE issued Rudolph and Hellmann Automotive Ltd with two notices in January. The first was a prohibition notice that meant the company could not perform any lifting work. The second was an improvement notice.

    The company was given until 5th May 2015 to provide an in-depth assessment of the risk of injury through these operations. They were apparently required to do so by January but failed to do so, according to reports.

    Investigations are continuing

    According to reports concerning the incident in which the man was injured on-site, the Health and Safety Executive is still conducting its investigations to determine what happened.

    The company was prohibited from performing any lifting operations back in November because the HSE felt there was immediate risk to the people working there.

    The initial improvement notice, served in October, was fully complied with the month after.
