Mold based D P Williams Holdings pleaded guilty to continued breaches of health and safety regulations despite being warned previously by the health and safety watchdog.

The specialist quarrying company was fined £5000 with £2500 by Wrexham Magistrates’ Court after admitting it had allowed employees to continue to work in quarry even though that had been told of the dangers by Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspectors.

The court heard the company had previously ignored advice from its own quarry manager and geotechnical specialist about working conditions at the quarry

The court also heard that while no one had been injured, the firm was issued with two Prohibition Notices and four Improvement Notices by the HSE over a period of December 2009 to September 2013 relating to dangerous working conditions at the quarry.
