The death of an engineer who worked for a neon sign manufacturer in the north west has hit the news again.
The company's Wigan boss was due in court today accused of a fatal breach of health and safety rules after the employee, who was working on the Albert Memorial in Manchester city centre from a cherry picker, fell to his death when it overturned.
The accident happened in 2007.
The boss and the company itself have been charged with breaching Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 by failing to ensure the safety of workers.
