A roofing company in Flintshire has been fined after safety risks were ignored and workers were put in danger.

Mold Magistrates Court heard that Aston Roofing North West Ltd did not put any safeguards in place to prevent falls from height, which led to the company being fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £100 n costs.

Aston Roofing North West Ltd pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 6(3) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005.

HSE inspector Chris Wilcox said: “These employees were working on fragile roofs and yet Aston Roofing North West had neglected to implement even the most basic safety measures to minimise the risks of falls. It is very fortunate that nobody was injured.”

Mr Wilcox went on to say that the prosecution should act s a reminder to building contractors and urge that working at height must be properly planned.

Recently, the HSE picked up an honour from the Institution of Chemical Engineers for its efforts in the field of offshore process safety.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801584323-ADNFCR
