It was a very sad week last week, with a truck mixer working on our behalf involved in a fatal road traffic collision in London on Thursday; it has been reported in the media that the deceased was a 77 year old man. This is the third fatal road traffic incident affecting our operations in London in the last 8 months. We are carrying out a full investigation alongside the authorities to see if there is anything more we can do to prevent any further tragedy.
Our thoughts are not only with the family and friends of the deceased, but also the truck mixer driver and the Team in London at what is a very difficult time.
In addition, we also have to retrospectively report a Lost Time Injury (LTI) involving an employee in our Aggregate Operations, who suffered a manual handling injury whilst shovelling sand, and a Restricted Work Injury within our Cement Operations where an aluminum frame fell onto a contractor’s foot. Both of these incidents fall within the definition of Total Recordable Injuries (TRIs).
