Another accident at hydro site

A Polish worker has been seriously injured at Hochtief Glendoe’s Scottish hydro-electric scheme just weeks after another man was killed on the site.

The man, an employee of Hochtief, is understood to have broken both legs after the vehicle in which he was travelling overturned and rolled down the side of the dam wall.

A prohibition notice was served following the accident ordering the contractor to stop use of all of its vehicles until safety checks were carried out.

The Health and Safety Executive, which has begun investigating the latest accident, is also conducting an inquiry into the death of Ondrej Hladik, 46, from Prague, who was killed last month in an accident involving a forklift truck at the site,
near Loch Ness.
