Crossrail contractors fined £1 million over worker’s death

Crossrail contractors have been hit with a fine of more than a million pounds over the death of a worker and two on-site injuries.

Contractors were fined in relation to the death of Rene Tkacik, from Slovakia, who died working on the Holborn section of Crossrail in 2014.

Mr Tkacik, 43 was killed after being crushed to death by falling wet concrete.

Less than a year later, two men were injured in separate incidents within six days of each other in January 2015 – also near to the Fisher Street area of central London.

The three men were working for Bam Ferrovial Kier (BFK), a venture made up of three companies, who pleaded guilty to health and safety breaches at Southwark Crown Court.
