Worker’s crush death leads to fine for East Lothian farmers

A family farm in East Lothian has today been fined £20,000 after one of its workers was crushed to death by a one-tonne concrete panel.

On 3 June 2008, a farm worker at Hamilton Farmers (East Lothian), was helping to build a perimeter wall at an open hay shed, when the pre-cast concrete panel toppled over and crushed him. He died from his injuries at the scene.
