Roofing work 'requires careful planning'

A recent message has been relayed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that may prompt businesses to reconsider how they are using safety signs.

The group has urged that roofing work must be undertaken with careful planning in order to avoid the risk of an accident.

Its advice comes as a Leamington Spa clutch manufacturer was prosecuted for putting its employees at risk when they worked at height.

Raicam Clutch Limited pleaded guilty to breaching regulation 4(1) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and was ordered to pay a £5,000 fine as well as costs of £4,952.

HSE inspector Mark Austin said: "In this case, an employee was working without any protection to prevent him falling which is completely unacceptable."

Businesses may now be able to learn more about health and safety, as the Institution of Occupational Health and Safety has teamed with Barbour Environment, Health and Safety to offer worldwide intelligence to its registered professionals.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800549278-ADNFCR
