Two Firms Fined after Worker Falls through Roof

Two Northamptonshire based firms have been fined by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) following an incident in which a worker died after falling through a roof.

Incident

In 2014, Premier Roofing Systems Limited hired the services of A-Lift Crane Hire Limited in order to lift roofing sheets onto a factory roof in Wellingborough. An employee of the crane hire company was helping to lift the sheets onto the roof on 9 August, when he fell through an unprotected skylight. The individual later died as a result of his injuries.

HSE investigators found that no preventative measures, allowing employees to work safety at height, had been put in place.

Sentencing

After pleading guilty to breaching Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, A-Lift Crane Hire Limited, of Main Road, Wilby Northamptonshire was fined £83,300. The company was also ordered to pay costs of £21,500.

Premier Roofing Systems Limited, of Unit G, The Grove, Corby Northamptonshire, pleaded guilty to breaching Section 3(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. The company was fined a total of £140,250 and ordered to pay costs of £41,428.
