Foam firm fined after worker injured

A Derbyshire foam manufacturer has been sentenced after a lorry driver’s back was broken when a pile of insulating board fell on him at the firm’s premises in Stoke on Trent.

Newcastle-under-Lyme Magistrates heard that on 21 October 2009 Colin Ball, a 52-year-old lorry driver from Codsall near Wolverhampton, was delivering a consignment of insulation board to the company’s warehouse when a separate stack toppled onto him and knocked him back into his trailer.
