Royal Mail fined

Medway Magistrates’ Court has fined the Royal Mail £50,000 after a worker had his foot run over by a reach truck.

The court heard that vehicles and pedestrians were unable to circulate safely in the Rochester warehouse. It was noted that the injured worker was wearing ordinary footwear rather than protective toecaps at the time of the incident. Royal Mail also had to pay costs of £10,406.
