10m fall at work

A worker has suffered life changing injuries following a 10m fall through a fragile roof. The man was instructed to carry out the roof repair work despite having expressed concern at the unsafe conditions.

Life changing injuries

In an investigation led by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Leicester Crown Court heard that Andrew Bannister, an employee of PK & IF Cobley Ltd, had been tasked with fixing cracks in a roof. Measures were not in place to ensure Mr Bannister’s safety whilst working at height. Mr Bannister fell 10 metres through the fragile roof.

Mr Bannister suffered a broken back, a broken neck, and three broken ribs. Mr Bannister commented:

“After the accident I had to use a walking stick permanently.
I will be on pain killers for the rest of my life. The
injury has changed my life completely.”

Dangerous working conditions – company fined

PK & IF Cobley Ltd, of Leicestershire, was found guilty of breaching the Work at Height Regulations 2005. The company was fined £75,000 and was ordered to pay costs of £29,351.88

HSE inspector Alison Cook commented:

“The risk of falls through fragile roofs is well-known and the precautions required are simple and effective. This sentence will serve as a
warning to firms that knowingly risking employees’ lives in
the course of their work will not be tolerated.”
