Aldi pleads guilty to Somercotes Health and Safety Breaches

Following an accident at the Aldi Store in Somercotes, in November 2013, when a delivery driver sustained serious injuries to his foot, Aldi Stores Ltd has pleaded guilty to two health and safety charges brought by Amber Valley Borough Council.

Aldi appeared at Derby Crown Court on Friday 13 January, for breaches of Section 2 and 3 of the Health and Safety at Work Act in failing in their duty to protect their employees and others from risk.

Aldi will be sentenced at a further hearing scheduled for 8 June 2017.

Councillor David Taylor, Amber Valley’s Portfolio Holder for Health and Wellbeing said: “While the Council welcomes the early guilty plea by Aldi Ltd, the public, and workers employed in Amber Valley, need to be assured that council officers will investigate workplace accidents, and, when necessary, take appropriate action. We will always pursue employers who put the public and workers at risk. This includes prosecution in more serious cases.”
