A 24-year-old man has died in hospital after an accident at a waste company site in Derbyshire.
The accident happened last week (7 June), and took place at Rainbow Waste’s site in Swadlincote.
The Burton Mail reported that the man was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, where he died on Saturday (8 June). A police spokesman said it was a “tragic accident.”
The HSE told MRW: “We are aware and investigating.”
The waste and recycling sector considered one of Britain’s most dangerous industries. In September 2012, the HSE issued a warning that efforts to improve worker safety within the industry must improve, following nine deaths over a 12-week period.
