WHOPPER PAYOUT FOR IPSWICH BURGER KING FRANCHISEE AFTER WORKER INJURED DUE TO HEALTH AND SAFETY BREACHES

In an extraordinary case, a Burger King franchisee has received fines totalling £166,600 for two identical breaches, with one fine totalling £153,360 and the other totalling £13,300.

Due to the introduction of the new sentencing penalties, the two fines are so different in value because one breach relates to an offence on, or after, March 12 2015 and carries an unlimited fine, and the second breach relates to before March 12 2015 and carries a maximum fine of £20,000.

Fines for breaches of Health & Safety, and Food Safety legislation are certainly getting a lot biggerdue to the new sencencing guidelines that came in on the 1st Feb.
The prosecution argued that the case involves a high culpability case with a risk of serious harm. If the court had accepted that this was the case, the starting point for a fine would have been £950,000. However, the defence argues that the company's culpability lies within the medium range with a lower risk of harm. In this case the starting point for a fine would be £50,000.

We can help all businesses with their operational risk management, either by undertaking and delivering training through www.Aroma-Training.co.uk or by consultancy through our sister consultancy business - Aroma Consultancy (UK).

FOOD SAFETY AND HYGIENE REGULATIONS ARE CHANGING.

The changes are coming into force on the 15th October 2016, if you run a food business and want to know how these changes will affect your business, then please do get in touch with us at Aroma Training Academy on T: 01952 371 743

THIS YEAR WE HAVE SEEN THE FIRST SENTENCES TAKING PLACE UNDER THE NEW SENTENCING GUIDELINES.

The new sentencing guidelines for Health and Safety, Corporate Manslaughter and Food Safety offences which came into force on 1st Feb 16 and apply to any case sentenced in courts in England and Wales after that date, have seen some very large fines and custodial sentences imposed on companies and directors.

Security firm G4S Cash Solutions was fined £1.8 million after one of its employees contracted legionellosis, despite the fact that environmental health officers were unable to prove the worker had contracted the disease from the site. Officers did, however, uncover a serious lack of compliance in maintaining water systems at the workplace.

Of 101 Health and Safety fines issued, 38% affected those in the construction sector, according to insurance and risk firm BLM.

The three highest fines alone totaled £5.6m, all of which involved fatalities of either staff or customers. Directors of two construction companies were also given custodial sentences; one given six years after being found guilty of gross negligence manslaughter and the other being sentenced to six months after one of his employees was killed on site.

The legal costs were substantial too, with the biggest three fines resulting in almost £185,000 in prosecution costs for the companies involved.

This week Alton Towers. owners Merlin was fined £5m and £69,955 costs after admitting Health and Safety breaches that led to the Smiler rollercoaster crash.

As the courts become more versed in imposing the sentences, we are yet to see how big they will go - and, more importantly, if these sentences will act as a true deterrent, with the desired effect of lowering workplace risk.

Please don't wait to find out how big these fines can be, get in touch, we can help any company either by delivering a range of compliance based training to it's staff, and or we can offer Health and Safety advice and guidance to the company management team.

Scores on the Doors

HOW CAN YOU TELL THE RESTAURANT YOU'RE EATING IS CLEAN?

A BBC investigation found bacteria with traces of faeces on the ice served in a branch of a well-known fast food chain. Since most UK restaurants don't have to display their hygiene rating, how can you tell you're not at risk of food poisoning, go to the toilets

How clean is your local eatery?
The Food Standards Agency provides ratings for restaurants throughout the UK at its website or check out on the website below.
https://www.scoresonthedoors.org.uk

Catriona Stewart, head of the FSA's Food Hygiene Ratings Scheme, says the FSA wants the rest of the UK to follow suit, and it's currently assembling the evidence that it hopes will persuade the government to introduce legislation to that effect.

"We need to be able to show that it doesn't have an additional burden on food businesses, and we'll be putting that case to the government," she says.

In the meantime, how can diners eating on the hoof somewhere that doesn't display its hygiene rating get a sense of how clean it is?

John Thornhill, who owns a tapas restaurant rated five in central London, says fresh flowers are usually a good sign - if owners care enough to put them out "there's still some love there".

Also, he suggests: "I would ask your server what their favourite dish is. If you get a response that talks about the latest seasonal changes and how they tried this as a group last week, chances are you're in a good situation. If you get the impression that they never eat there, you probably shouldn't either. "

Food safety and hygiene expert Dr Lisa Ackerley recommends the time-honoured route of checking the loos.

"GO TO THE TOILETS, see what it looks like in there, if they can't get that right, I'm sure they won't have got the kitchen right," she says.

When Health and Safety fails for any business it can be very costly indeed, especially as fines are now unlimited.

Fined: £2,000,000.00
Costs: £114,812.76
Total: £2,114,812.76

Travis Perkins, a builders’ retailer, has been fined £2 million after the death of a customer in Milton Keynes.

Mark John Pointer was crushed by a company vehicle at Travis Perkins Trading Company Limited in Old Wolverton in November 2012.
Mr Pointer, 44, was loading planks of wood onto the roof rack of his Land Rover when he fell backwards onto the yard surface.

It appears that one of the cargo straps he was using snapped. He was then run over by the wheels of a company vehicle operating in the yard. Mr Pointer died from crushing injuries.

Travis Perkins pleaded guilty to two offences under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.

The company initially denied the causal link between the offences and the death but subsequently conceded that point.
Travis Perkins appeared at Amersham Crown Court last week, and was fined £2 million and ordered to pay prosecution costs of £114,812.76.

Martin Brown, Environmental Health Team Leader with Milton Keynes Council, said: “We are pleased with the result and fine imposed as it reiterates the importance of treating health and safety seriously.

“Individuals falling whilst loading and unloading vehicles is a common risk. The company had failed to ensure loading and unloading activities were undertaken in a safe manner in a safe area.”

In sentencing the company, Judge Justin Cole said he took the view that this “was an accident waiting to happen”.

FEE FOR INTERVENTION
If you are breaking Health & Safety laws, HSE may recover its costs from you by charging a fee for the time and effort it spends on helping you to put the matter right, investigation and taking enforcement action.

SO WHAT IS FEE INTERVENTION?
HSE's inspectors inspect work activities and investigate incidents and complaints. If, when visiting your business, they see material breaches of the law, you will have to pay a fee. The fee is based on the amount of time that the inspector has had to spend identying the breach, helping you to put it right, investigating and taking enforcement action.

SO HOW MUCH IS THIS FEE?
It is currently £129 per hour, if you are lucky and it just takes an 8 hour day to investigate the breach, then you can expect a £1,032 bill. Serious breaches can and very often do take weeks (£5,160 per Wk) or even months (£20,640 per month) to investigate and therefore can be very costly indeed.

The HSE says " The many business that comply with their legal obligations will continue to pay nothing"

At Aroma Training Academy and Aroma Consultancy (UK) we have the necessary resources to help your business comply with Health and Safety law,from taining to consultancy all at a fraction of the cost of any FFI.

As a special Spring offer, we are offering all Telford & Shropshire Businesses a FREE 2 hour Health and Safety audit and detailed report, to book your FREE audit and report, just contact us on 01952 371 743 or email [email protected].

THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE BIGEST FINES FOR A FOOD BUSINESS THIS YEAR.

DOCTOR AND EX-WIFE HIT WITH £93,000
BILL OVER RAT INFESTED CURRY HOUSE IN CROYDON

The owners of a central Croydon restaurant that had a catalogue of food hygiene and health and safety failures, have been hit with fines and costs totalling almost £93,000.

On Monday, Dr Mardan Mahmood and his now ex-wife, Hend Hamude, returned to Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court for sentencing on a total of 36 charges relating to Babylon Inn, formerly at the junction of North End and Tamworth Road.

Mahmood, the director of the company that owned Babylon Inn, was fined a total of £35,000; Hamude, who had earlier denied being the food business operator, in charge of the day-to-day running of the restaurant, was fined £11,800; and the company, Babylon Inn Ltd, was fined £30,000.

In addition, the company and Mahmood were each ordered to pay £4,977 in costs, with Hamude ordered to pay £5,777.33; each defendant was also ordered to pay a £120 victim surcharge. With a total of all financial penalties amounting to £92,887.33.

A Hygiene Prohibition Order was made against Mahmood, banning him from participating in the management of any food business until such time as the order is rescinded by the courts.

The offences included breaches of food-hygiene regulations, the Health and Safety at Work Act, and the Public Health Act – the latter being the first prosecution for smoking in the workplace, after officers found cigarettes butts in the kitchen, and a chef smoking in the kitchen during a subsequent visit.

At earlier hearings, the court had been told that Babylon Inn had been subject to five food hygiene and safety visits in fewer than four years’ trading. They followed reports of sightings of live cockroaches and mice, rodents’ droppings, unacceptable cleaning standards and poor structural conditions.

The court heard that, while carrying out a routine inspection in July 2013, food safety offers found a number of breaches of hygiene regulations and that standards were very poor.

In addition to the lack of a food safety management system, poor standards of cleaning and bad structural repair were evident in the kitchen, preparation and storage rooms in the basement. There was an ongoing active infestation of rodents, with mouse and rat droppings found throughout the kitchen and food storage areas in the basement, and a live mouse was seen in the small food preparation area in the basement.

With an imminent risk to public health, it was decided the premises should close until that risk was removed.

Returning a week later, officers found that Hamude had carried out only sufficient of the pest-proofing measures to allow the business to reopen, but had failed to carry out a number of other required works.

A further visit, in April 2014, revealed continuous breaches of the food hygiene regulations, and additional health and safety contraventions. Mahmood had given assurances that the structural works had been completed, but the finish to the basement food preparation and storage areas was found to be of poor quality.

The standard of cleaning throughout the kitchen, food preparation and storage areas was very poor and similar to that of the previous July’s visit.

Evidence of German cockroaches was found in a food storage room; the food safety management system was incomplete and had not been practically implemented. Poor food-handling practices were observed, and health and safety hazards were identified, including electrical safety issues.

And, a month later, a customer reported seeing a cockroach in the restaurant’s dining area, as he ate a meal with his daughter.

A further visit on 18 June revealed continuous breaches of food hygiene regulations and health and safety contraventions, including evidence of an active German cockroach infestation throughout the kitchens and food storage areas.

Councillor Mark Watson, cabinet member for communities, safety and justice
“Having previously described the conditions in this restaurant as ‘appalling’, I’m glad to be able to say that the court, through the severe financial penalties it has imposed on all concerned, seems to have agreed with me.

“Additional to the fines imposed, the director of the company has been banned, indefinitely, from running a food business again. That’s a decision that offers the public a safeguard against his opening other food outlets that could pose a threat to the health of customers.

“It’s worth pointing out that this case is very much the exception to the rule. Croydon does much to promote good, safe and healthy food, and 79% of local food businesses are rated 3 or better in the Food Standards Agency scores-on-the-doors scheme. We have plenty of places with good standards, and those not meeting those standards are easily avoided.”
