Tracking health and safety: How have fines escalated in logistics?

21 May 2019

Henry Kirkup explores the impact the sentencing guidelines continue to have on organisations and individuals within the logistics industry for Rail Professional Magazine.

Speaking about the 2016 sentencing guidelines, Henry says: "Fines for transport and logistics health and safety breaches have totalled over £16 million since 2016. The largest fine handed down in the sector to date was to Network Rail, which was ordered to pay £4 million in 2016 after a member of the public was fatally injured at a crossing point, with evidence emerging that pedestrian visibility at the crossing was poor."
