Accidents kill 12 people per hour in Bangladesh

This family from south Hatia seems to reflect the state of accidents in Bangladesh. According to the last national survey on accidents brought out in 2016, it was revealed that 12 persons died in accidents and injuries per hour in Bangladesh. Every hour 2287 persons were injured. And among those seriously injured, every hour 28 were rendered disabled.

The report, ‘Bangladesh Health and Accident Survey 2016’, was prepared by the health ministry’s non-infectious disease control programme and the non-government Centre for Injury Prevention and Research, Bangladesh (CIPRB). A summary of the report was published, but not the entire report. Prothom Alo recently managed to get a copy of the full report.

Manager at Ewell restaurant banned after pleading guilty to food safety breaches | Surrey Comet

The proprietor of a Ewell restaurant prosecuted for multiple breaches of food safety regulations has been banned from managing in the industry.

Mr Chun Gen Zheng of the Fortune Cookie restaurant in Ewell was sentenced at Guildford Magistrates Court earlier this week (Tuesday, June 25) after pleading guilty to 21 offences under the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) regulations.

As the Comet reported previously, the case was pursued following a food hygiene inspection in September 2018, which uncovered a level of food hygiene described by the Environmental Health inspector as ‘appalling’ and among the worst practices she had ever seen, a spokesperson for Epsom and Ewell Borough Council (EEBC) said.

The charges related to unsafe storage of food likely to render it unfit to consume, dirty equipment, dirty premises, dirty and damaged food containers, staff wearing dirty clothing and aprons, a lack of hand washing materials, preparing food in an outside yard and inadequate pest control

Maintenance failings are blamed for death of bride-to-be struck and killed by ‘rotten’ roofing panel | Daily Mail Online

A company which admitted breaching health and safety laws after a woman was killed by debris blown off a building roof by Storm Doris oversaw ‘serious’ maintenance failings, a court heard.

Tahnie Martin, 29, from Stafford, was struck by a wooden panel which had been torn from its ‘rotten’ fixings on the roof of the Mander Shopping Centre, in Wolverhampton, in February 2017.

An inquest previously concluded a plant room on top of the roof, from which the panel was ripped away, may not have been maintained for nearly two decades.

Cushman Wakefield Debenham Tie Leung Ltd ( DTZ) , which was the managing agent responsible for centre maintenance at the time, had already admitted breaches of health and safety rules.

Places in Bristol given zero and one-star food hygiene ratings recently – Bristol Live

More than 20 Bristol establishments have received a one or zero-star food hygiene rating since the start of April.

The Food Standards Agency classes businesses with a one-star rating as ‘major improvement necessary’ and those with zero as ‘urgent improvement necessary’.

Inspectors consider how hygienically food is handled, how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored.

Also key is how the business manages and records what it does to ensure food is safe.
