In short: Steel fabricator ignored improvement notices

A structural steel products manufacturer failed to comply with enforcement notices from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), landing it with a £13,333 fine. 


William Fry Fabrications received both improvement and prohibition notices in 2011, requiring it to thoroughly examine two of its cranes at least once a year. However, an investigation by the HSE found the company did not comply with these demands during 2012-2015.  

At Westminster Magistrates’ Court, William Fry Fabrications pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 9(3)(a) of the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations. It was fined and ordered to pay full costs of £2,527.
