Jaguar Land Rover in court over Halewood death

Car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover is to be prosecuted following the death of a worker at its plant in Halewood, Merseyside.

Graham Begley, 49 from Halewood, was found trapped between two pieces of heavy machinery at the Speke Boulevard site on 26 September 2011.

Jaguar Land Rover Ltd is being prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) over alleged breaches of Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and Regulation 3(1) of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. The charges relate to failing to ensure the safety of Mr Begley, and failing to properly assess the risks its employees faced.

The company, of Abbey Road in Whitley, Coventry, is due to appear before Liverpool Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 12 June 2014 for the first hearing of the case.
