Hinkley Point B industrial safety prosecution

EDF Energy today (1 February) attended a sentencing hearing at Taunton Crown Court. This followed an earlier hearing at which the company had submitted a guilty plea to a prosecution brought by the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The charges relate to an incident on 12 April 2017 at Hinkley Point B which resulted in injury to a Doosan Babcock Ltd employee.
