One employee was killed, and three other people suffered significant injuries, after there was a failure to follow the company’s health and safety procedures and an explosion of a water pipe resulted.

The company was fined $81,000 and ordered to pay reparation to the victims of $315,000.

You need to ensure that procedures you have in place are being adhered to each and every time.  If they had been followed here the loss of life and severe injuries would not have occurred.
