Spedeworth International is being prosecuted over alleged health and safety issues relating to a “demountable” stand at Foxhall Stadium.
The prosecution has been taken out by Suffolk Coastal District Council.
The case was due to be heard at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court in Ipswich yesterday.
However, due to legal issues the matter was adjourned until June 26.
Spedeworth International, of Holybush Industrial Park, Aldershot, is likely to face four accusations.
They are said to span a period of nearly two years between January 1, 2014 and October 27, 2015.
Three of the allegations relate to an employer failing to discharge its duty of general health/safety to a person other than an employee.
- 1 Men convicted of kidnap and rape of Ipswich girl
- 2 A12 reopens after air ambulance called to three-lorry crash
- 3 Weather warning for Suffolk as thunderstorms expected to affect travel
- 4 Two arrests made following stabbing
- 5 New Venezuelan restaurant to bring fusion of flavour to Ipswich
- 6 Forbidden Suffolk: 6 places you can't visit in the county
- 7 Man stabbed in back and sides in Ipswich attack
- 8 'We're lucky to get her back' - Drone finds missing Pinky after 17 days
- 9 Baby Elsie in ship-shape despite dramatic birth in car at Sutton Hoo
- 10 Community calls for action as two questioned over Ipswich stabbing
It is alleged it failed to conduct its undertaking not to expose people to risks to their health and safety.
Another accusation is that the company contravened a health and safety improvement or prohibition notice.
It is claimed that on March 15, 2016, Spedeworth contravened a requirement under an improvement notice to carry out remedial work to the demountable tiered seating at Foxhall Stadium.
