Case Studies

Case Study One


A large multinational courier, air road and sea freight operator had an incident where a security guard was hit by a reversing vehicle and was seriously injured in the exterior yard.

The HSE were called in and three possible prohibition and five improvement notices were issued to the organisation were given three months to implement changes and improvements or face a complete shutdown of the site.


A program of retraining was instigated with Health and safety awareness taking the forefront.

A complete traffic management system covering all vehicles and pedestrians was put in operation within the yard. All exterior loading and unloading by forklift trucks was reviewed and a new procedure was put in place. The yard was re painted with clear road markings giving clear, delineated pedestrian routes and designated loading bays for large goods vehicles and smaller vans. Flood lighting was put in place for the winter months for night loading.

All in All over £25000 was invested in training, physically amending the operation and upgrading equipment and procedures.

The result was that the HSE dropped all three prohibition notices and possible fines and all five improvement notices were completed.

Case Study Two


A small electrical contractor began to expand and had no Health and Safety program or procedures in place for its increasing large office team and self-employed subcontractors.


A full health and Safety policy and statement was put in place. Risk assessments and method statements (RAMS) for all of the different electrical operations was drawn up and put in place.

All staff and sub-contracted electricians were trained in the new RAMS and the health and safety policy.

A health and safety management system was put in place and a robust attitude to health and safety and ongoing training was taken up by the company resulting in the company winning more new business and expanding further.

Case Study Three


An Airfreight ground handler at Heathrow airport had some incidents with a Forklift truck operator damaging freight and equipment causing some financial losses and possible dangerous accidents.


A full review and assessment of the operators practical forklift skills did not show a lack of skills in the actual operation of the vehicle but when the theory side of the review was conducted in the classroom it was found that the operator had some small vision issues.

A vision test was conducted by the company Doctor and it was found that he needed glasses to operate the vehicle safely.

A refresher training session and retest brought the operator back up to full standards required and reduced the incidents to almost zero.
