Company fined after worker falls through roof

Bodmin Magistrates’ Court heard how a senior roofer working for Clean Earth Energy Limited was installing solar panels at Homeleigh Garden Centre in Launceston. While traversing the roof, the cement fibre sheeting he was walking on gave way and he fell approximately fifteen feet. He suffered multiple injuries including several fractured vertebrae.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) into the incident found the work was not properly planned or appropriately supervised.

Clean Earth Energy Limited, of Bess Park Road, Trenant Industrial Estate, Wadebridge, Cornwall, pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 4(1) of the Work at height Regulations 2005, and was fined £20,000 and ordered to pay costs of £1,704.
