Yorkshire’s National Coal Mining Museum Trust and two companies have been ordered to pay a total of £590,000 in fines and costs after a worker was crushed and killed at the museum in 2011.
58-year-old Michael Buckingham from Grimethorpe near Barnsley died after he became trapped between a tunnel construction machine and a dumper loader that he was operating.
The fatal incident happened 138 metres below ground at the museum’s site at Caphouse colliery in Wakefield.
Sheffield Crown Court heard that Mr Buckingham, an experienced miner and electrician, was part of a team working on the second phase of a £2.7 million improvement project. This involved constructing 140 metres of new tunnels to revitalise the visitors’ tour and increase the number of exhibition galleries.
Mr Buckingham sustained fatal crush injuries when he became trapped between the tunnel construction machine and the forward-tipping dumper - a mineral carrying machine - that he had been operating. Health and Safety inspectors found the dumper was unsafe.
