McGinley Recruitment Services


Balfour Beatty and employment agency McGinley Recruitment Services (MRS) were this week fined a total of £325,000 following an investigation into the death of a rail worker. The Health & Safety Executive brought charges against the firms after Michael Mungovan, 22, was killed in October 2000. He was hit from behind by a train at Vauxhall, London, while preparing to take track into possession. The Old Bailey heard that both firms failed in their duty of care to the inexperienced worker. Both pleaded guilty and were ordered to pay costs.
