In August 2019, a Dyson person was injured when a heavy piece of machinery, which was being moved, became unstable. Today, Wednesday 3rd August 2022, Swindon Magistrate’s Court handed down its decision, on a case which was brought by the Health and Safety Executive, and issued Dyson with a fine. Below is Dyson's statement on the judgement.
A Dyson spokesperson said:
"The health, safety and well-being of Dyson’s people is our number one priority. Prior to this case, Dyson has had no convictions, or enforcement history related to Health and Safety at work.
"We are thankful that the employee was not more seriously hurt and has been able to return to work at Dyson. As an engineering company, we use complex and often heavy equipment and take care to do so safely. We deeply regret that this happened and we accept the Court’s decision today.
"We were pleased that in its judgement the Court noted our ‘excellent safety record’, our ‘prompt response to this incident and full cooperation at the highest level within the company’ and said that Dyson is an ‘exemplary corporate citizen’."
