Falling boxes killed man at a fish processing company in Plymouth

A Plymouth based company have been fined £500,000 after falling boxes killed a man at their fish processing location in Plymouth.

22 year old Tomas Suchy was helping clear up a fallen stack of frozen fish boxes when there was another fall of stock which stuck him. The HSE investigated the incident – which happened 2 and ½ years ago, to find there was not a safe system of work or instruction of staff on how pallet should be stored.
Interfish Limited pleaded guilty to beaching Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, and has to pay £24,800 costs on top of the £500,000 fine.
