The director of a Norwich giftware company has been handed a six-month prison sentence for electrical safety failings.

Norwich Crown Court heard that an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive found that Michael Lustig, owner of Homenaturals ltd, had dangerous electrical installations and equipment in his workplace.

Inspectors also noted how the company failed to report the fall of a worker even though it was classed as a major incident.

HSE inspector Malcolm Crowther said: "Employers and the self-employed have a legal duty to ensure electrical installations and equipment are safe for use. You should always use a qualified electrician when you install wiring and equipment, and get the electrics periodically checked and tested by an electrician."

Mr Crowther went on to say that the HSE identified several issues relating to the fall, insisting that these could have been prevented if the surface was free of debris and kept clear.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801637754-ADNFCR
