Firm fined after teen worker’s leg crushed by steel

A Wolverhampton manufacturer has been fined £8,000 after a teenage employee was trapped under a load of steel, breaking his leg.

HSE prosecuted Dranson Ltd after a 17-year-old worker was left pinned to the floor in agony after approximately 700 kg of steel fell off a trolley he was pushing. He needed several pins and metal plates in his leg and his recovery has been delayed due to complications with the broken and shattered bones.
