A Long Bennington company has been fined over £45,000 after a worker’s leg was crushed by steel beams.

Losberger UK was fined £25,000, ordered to pay costs of £20,374.86 and a £175 surcharge, after pleading guilty to a contravention of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on December 9.

An employee at the events structure firm suffered a broken a leg when a 41 stone structure landed on him earlier this year.

Lincoln Magistrates’ Court heard the beams had been returned to site at their Long Bennington base on July 11 last year from an external event.
