The Company was a contractor engaged in multi-million pounds construction work for a national chain of supermarket. A labourer was seriously injured, leading to the amputation of his lower leg, when dangerous equipment was provided to him by a site manager in circumstances where he was not qualified to use the equipment.
Following a 3 day trial at Manchester Crown Court the Company was unanimously acquitted.
