It has been reported that Moy Park, Anwick has been fined after admitting breach of health and safety regulations following an incident in which a worker was injured.

The employee was carrying out checks on the tail cutting machine on the factory’s KFC production line in January 2015 when the line restarted. The prosecution argued that the production line should not have been restarted while an engineer was working on it and that “there was inadequate training” and “There was pressure to keep the machinery operational and keep shutdowns to a minimum.” It was also “suggested there were regular problems on the KFC line at the plant and there was always a rush to get the repair work done”

Moy Park Ltd admitted failing to ensure the health, safety and welfare of its employees at their Anwick plant as a result of the incident on January 7, 2015.

When should I seek assistance?

As an employee, if you feel that a situation at your workplace is unsafe then inform your supervisor and the health and safety officer. You could also inform a Union representative, if one is available.

If you are in an accident at work, it may not be at the fault of your employer, however if it could have been avoided then you may have a claim for personal injury.

We at Ringrose Law understand it can be difficult for some people to consider action against their employer, it should be remembered that they have Employer Liability Insurance for this very reason and it is a requirement of law that they have it in place.
