Roofing firm fined for breach of safety

A roofing firm has been fined £2,000 after two of its workers were filmed on top of a Nottinghamshire building with no safety equipment.

The two men working for Graham Nicholson Roofing were caught on CCTV on the roof of Cooperative Travel at the Lakeside Centre, Balderton.

Staff operating the security cameras alerted the Health and Safety Executive after seeing them above the main entrance of the shop without harnesses, edge protection or safety items.

The HSE said the way they were working on 16 June last year put the roofers and members of the public at risk.

Newark Magistrates’ Court fined Graham Nicholson Roofing, of Nettleham Road, Lincoln, £2,000 after it admitted breaching section 4(1) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005. The firm must also pay costs of £1,500.
