Construction

A builder has been fined for safety failings after an employee suffered life changing injuries when he fell through a fragile roof light.

 

Bristol Crown Court heard how in August 2014 the 25-year-old employee of N C Tucker Limited of Wedmore, fell five metres through a fragile roof light at a farm during roofing work. This was his first roofing job, having only worked for the company for four weeks prior to the incident.

He suffered brain injury, a fractured spine and broken ribs.
