Roofing company fined after workers found without any safety equipment
Safety signs are crucial in the workplace to avoid injuries, as a recent case has highlighted.
A roofing company has been fined £2,000 after workers were caught by CCTV working on top of a shopping centre without any safety equipment.
Newark Magistrates' Court heard that workers for Graham Nicholson Roofing Ltd had been working on repairs to the roof of the Lakeside Centre in Balderton using no safety equipment, edge protection or harnesses to prevent them from falling.
This not only presented a risk to the workers but to any shoppers at the Lakeside Centre.
Health and Safety Executive inspector, Stephen Farthing, called the situation a "blatant disregard for health and safety".
"Roofing work requires careful planning and assessment of the risks involved.
"In this case employees were working without the correct equipment to protect them from falls or to protect passersby from falling material."
This week, Glasgow Sheriff Court heard that an incident when a man died after falling from scaffolding could have been prevented had the proper safety systems been in place.
The court fined both companies involved, Robert Construction Central Ltd and Stirling Stone Ltd, £200,000 each.
