Sole trader in court after ignoring HSE notice
A sole trader who repaired cars in a residential area of Bedford has been sentenced after failing to comply with an Health and Safety Executive enforcement notice.
Mr Franklin Joseph had been spraying flammable liquids at a premises in Cromwell Road. Electrical equipment used within the area posed a risk of fire and explosion.
The terms of the notice were explained to Mr Joseph, who needed to have an electrician check the system to ensure it was safe to use near flammable liquids.
He failed to comply with this notice within the specified period despite being given an extension and receiving advice from the HSE inspector.
