Lcvs: Hours warning after death crash

1 August 2006

A warning to companies that they must start tracking the working hours of their drivers is being issued to van operators after the first UK health and safety prosecution of its type.

The Produce Connection was fined £30,000 after one of its workers (not employed as a driver) died when his vehicle drifted into the path of a lorry. He had worked 76 hours in the previous four days and chronic fatigue is believed to have been a major factor.
