Worker impaled at Workington factory

A Workington company has been fined £15,000 after a steel cable shot through a worker’s leg, leaving him with a hole through his shin.

A.C.P (Concrete) Ltd, which produces concrete panels, was prosecuted by HSE following the incident in their factory in the Derwent Howe Industrial Estate, which left worker Jamie Graham, 25, from Cockermouth in a hip to toe full leg cast for six weeks and on crutches for another four months.
