Update on Health and Safety Incident


Further to the Update on Health & Safety Incident announcement made by Accrol Group Holdings plc (AIM:ACRL) on 12 October 2017, the Company announces that, at the sentencing hearing today, Accrol Papers Limited (a directly owned subsidiary of the Company) was fined £120,000 (after discount) for a single health and safety regulatory offence.


The sentencing court commented that the fine had been reduced by one third in light of the guilty plea entered at the earliest opportunity and the Company's full co-operation with the HSE investigation. The Company has been given 12 months to pay the fine.


As previously reported, the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) had previously indicated to the Company that it was seeking a fine in the range of £550,000 to £2.9m for this incident.


Accrol takes the Health and Safety of its employees very seriously and the directors are pleased that this has been recognised in today's judgement.
