Two companies from Carmarthenshire and West Midlands have been fined after a worker was killed when he fell from a telehandler.
Swansea Crown Court heard how a 50 year old self-employed contractor working for Advance Door Engineering Ltd, who had been contracted by Shufflebottom Limited to fabricate and install roller shutter doors on an extension to a slipway building at Mustang Marine in Pembroke Dock.
The contractor was working at height with a co-worker on a telehandler when it came into contact with fencing. When the telehandler was released from the obstruction it caused the basket to jerk, throwing both operators from the basket. The contractor was not clipped onto the basket and fell to the ground sustaining fatal injuries.
An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that the companies had not properly thought through the risks that could occur with the task.
Shufflebottom Limited of Cross Hands, Carmarthenshire pleaded guilty, to breaches of Regulation 3(1)(b) of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, and were fined £125,000 and ordered to pay costs of £43,000.
Advance Door Engineering Limited of Malthouse Road, Tipton, West Midlands pleaded guilty, to breaches of Regulation 3(1)(b) of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, and were fined £1 due to insolvency.

Forty-three people - including two teenagers - are likely to be badly injured by UK fork lift trucks in the next seven days, according to new findings released by the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA).
The shocking figures, based upon HSE workplace accident statistics since 2001, also show that forklift trucks injure almost as many people at work as vans, cars and HGVs combined.

Statistically, alongside two victims under the age of 19, an average week's injury toll of 43 would include the following types of people:
11 serious, long-term injuries, such as amputations
5 victims at or approaching retirement age (55+)
3 injuries to female workers
20 pedestrians struck by a moving truck
Someone in the UK is killed by a fork lift truck on average every six weeks. This rate doubles in September as companies take on additional staff to cope with pre-Christmas stock movements
