Prohibition notices in 2014-15

We served 10 prohibition notices, two are currently subject to appeal and therefore not included in the above chart. Of the other eight: one was served on Network Rail and another on its contractor, one on a train operator and another on their depot contractor, one on a metro operator, four on London Underground and one on a county council. The 10 prohibition notices were double the figure in 2013-14. The reasons for our notices included:

  • failures to manage working at height and to set up scaffolding safely;
  • failure to manage risks from working with or from electricity sources; and
  • failure to manage manual handling risks.
