Pirelli issues statement on worker injury case
In a statement responding to the outcome of the HSE-prosecuted case against Pirelli Tyres Ltd, in which Carlisle Magistrates’ Court handed the tyre maker a £20,000 plus costs fine, Pirelli has expressed sympathy to the injured worker and summarised its position towards work and safety within its plants.
“Pirelli Tyres Limited deeply regrets the injury to its long serving employee. The company is and always has been committed to ensuring high levels of health and safety for all its employees. As such it was encouraging for Pirelli that the court recognised the significant investment the company had made and continues to make in health and safety provision, including the improvements made across the Carlisle factory which exceed the statutory requirements.”
