Liquid medical products fell from the transporter’s trailer

THE CONTEXT

The manufacturer had worked with a haulier to draw up specifications for the temperature-controlled shuttles that would transport the goods between sites.

The driver loaded three vats of liquid medical products into his refrigerated lorry.

While moving the vehicle, the vats tipped over, spilling their contents on the floor.
