It passed the Assembly in May and ordered to the Senate where it passed the transportation and housing committee Tuesday.Under Assembly Bill 2918, the new information that will be provided in the Driver’s Handbook will be determined by a group of stakeholders convened by the Department of Justice (DOJ).“The Driver’s Handbook includes suggestions on how to conduct one’s self during a stop, but stops short of stating the rights of the driver,” Holden said. “Being informed of these rights are critical in situations that can quickly go from calm to worse.”The stakeholder group will be directed to provide information about the extent and the limitations of a peace officer’s authority during a traffic stop, and the rights of drivers and passengers, the bill said. This information will be developed by the DOJ and DMV after consulting with stakeholders in public safety and civil justice.“Studies show that people of color in California are most affected by traffic stops,” Holden said. “Safety is paramount and staying informed of the driver’s rights can help alleviate stress and avoid escalations caused by being on edge.” Herbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Metabolism-Boosting Foods For Weight LossHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAncient Beauty Remedies From India To Swear By For Healthy SkinHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyBohemian Summer: How To Wear The Boho Trend RightHerbeautyHerbeauty Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Your email address will not be published.

Greencore fined £40,000+ after worker severs fingers

first_imgGreencore Food To Go has said it “deeply regrets” an incident last April where a worker had two fingers severed by a mixing machine at its Spalding site. The company was fined more than £40,000 at Boston Magistrates Court on Monday, 2 November for breaches of Regulation 11 of the Provision of Use of Work Regulations 1998 and Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, in connection with the incident.The Court heard that the employee was cleaning the machine when his hand came into contact with the paddles, severing two fingers on 21 April 2014.The issue of access to the dangerous parts of the machine had been raised by a supervisor at the site in 2013, but the company had failed to take the necessary action, the Court was told.The injured worker, who wanted to remain anonymous, had not received training on the machine.The prosecution was brought by the Health and Safety Executive, which found the guarding standard of the mixer fell below what was required by law and gave rise to significant risk.The standards that the company needed to apply were widely available, long published and easily understood, it said.The company was fined £20,000 for each offence and was ordered to pay full costs of £1,037. It also had to pay a victim surcharge of £120.No compensation was granted by the court because the company had settled this out of court.A spokesman told British Baker: “Greencore takes the safety and well-being of its people very seriously. We deeply regret the injury sustained by our colleague. We have cooperated fully with the HSE and as a result of the investigation have further strengthened our already robust health and safety procedures.” Greencore Food to Go manufactures pre-packed sandwiches, wraps, rolls, baguettes, prepared salads and other food products.last_img read more
