ACP Concrete fined over Martin McGlasson staircase death
A concrete company has been fined after a worker was killed by a falling staircase in 2011.
Martin McGlasson was polishing the nearly-completed 2.9 tonne structure at ACP Concrete Ltd in Lakes Road, Workington, when it collapsed onto him.
The 37-year-old, from Workington, suffered multiple injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The company admitted two health and safety breaches and was fined £180,000 by the judge at Carlisle Crown Court.
One of the breaches related to Mr McGlasson's death, the other to a separate incident in which a worker suffered bruised legs when he was trapped against a mould.
It was also ordered to pay costs of £60,626.
