A fine of £100,000 for a hospital trust's failure to discharge its duty to persons not in its employment under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 s.3(1) was reduced to £40,000 as the judge had failed to take sufficient account of the mitigating features and the fact that the trust was a public body.
