Crush death firm admits safety breach


A paper company has admitted breaking safety regulations after a manager suffered fatal injuries.

The firm admitted failing to prevent access to dangerous machinery.

The company also pleaded not guilty to a more serious charge of failing to discharge its duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act by failing to ensure a safe working operation.

Malcolm Galloway, prosecuting on behalf of the Health and Safety Executive, said the plea to the lesser count was likely to be acceptable, but told the judge a final decision would be notified to the court within two weeks.
