Council fined after 90-year-old lady dies

HSE is warning health and social care organisations and other employers to ensure that they carry out suitable risk assessments to determine the safety of equipment used in everyday tasks. This warning follows an incident that occurred in June 2007 outside the house of a 90-year-old lady. She was sitting in a wheelchair when it fell from the back of a vehicle operated by Staffordshire County Council. She suffered internal injuries and died 3 days later in Russell’s Hall Hospital.
