MESH are often requested to assist clients in the investigation of accidents when a RIDDOR report is needed to be made. This occurred at a Kent based sign company in 2008 when an accident in their yard occurred involving a fork lift truck and an employee. This resulted in the employee sustained a back injury requiring a prolonged absence from work.
We assisted the company in leading the investigation process and the completion of the RIDDOR report. This incident was subsequently followed up by the HSE but due to the improvement actions already undertaken they were happy to accept that the necessary improvements had been undertaken and took no further action.
