Mr M from Burton on Trent in Staffordshire was 28 when his accident involving a truck happened at work.
He had been performing his ordinary run of the mill duties when he was crashed into by a truck. The truck appeared to have come from no-where and the driver did not seem to have paid enough attention to the situation around him.
An accident involving a heavy goods vehicle could potentially cause a fatal accident and as such around such vehicles employers have a duty to ensure the environment in which they operate is conducive to the safety of its employees.
When large equipment is required to be around pedestrians and employees going about their business on foot it is imperative that employers try to use tools to reduce the risk of the equipment damaging any employee. Simple measures such as having designated pathway for staff to walk along which the truck is not allowed on can be beneficial. Other safety measures could be the introduction of a safety barrier which prevents the forklift truck from being driven into the pedestrian area.

If risks in the workplace are minimised employers would actually benefit as they would lose fewer working days due to the harm that they have caused their employees.
