Lead Exposure: Roofing Firm Pleads Guilty to Safety Failings

A roofing company based in Gloucestershire has been fined for safety failings after two workers were exposed to dangerous levels of lead.

Worcester Magistrates’ Court heard that whilst carrying out a routine visit, a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspector witnessed workers undertaking the replacement of lead on a roof in Worcester.

The court heard that the company had not considered the risks of exposure to those working with lead; furthermore the company had not implemented any suitable measures to prevent that exposure.

The two workers carrying out the replacement lead work had not suffered any medical affects, however a substantial level of lead was found in their blood.

After pleading guilty to Control of Lead at Work 6(1), McDonnell-Price (Roofing) Contractors Limited, Stroud Business Centre was fined £3,000 and ordered to pay costs of £893.95.
