A Southampton company has been prosecuted after an outdoors activity instructor was left permanently disabled.
Joshua Senior, 25, plunged nine metres to the ground at the Rock (UK) adventure centre in Carroty Wood, near Tonbridge, Kent, on August 25 2010.
Instead of allowing Mr Senior to descend in a measured way, the rope supplied by Pfeifer Rope & Tackle Ltd simply unravelled as he stepped off a platform for a practice descent.
Mr Senior, an experienced instructor from Tunbridge Wells, suffered a broken back and was paralysed from the waist down for some six months. He slowly regained some use of his lower limbs over the following year with the help of Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
As he was regaining movement, it became clear his ankle had been crushed and his right foot had to be amputated. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigated and today prosecuted the company for serious safety breaches at Southampton Magistrates’ Court.
Pfiefer Rope & Tackle Ltd., of Marchwood Industrial Park, was fined £20,000 and ordered to pay £6,348 in costs after admitting breaching the Health & Safety at Work Act.
