    Work accident risk caught on camera

    By David Brown on December 8, 2013

    Work accident risk caught on camera

    A London roofer who put his staff at risk of a work accident had his safety failings caught on camera by a passing council official.

    Amarjeet Singh, from Southall, was fined £2,000 after the officer photographed workers on top of a North West London home with no protection against falling creating an accident risk.

    At least two employees were spotted by the official as they worked on the property in Harrow, on October 26, 2012.

    There was no evidence of any provisions in position to stop the accident risk to workmen, materials or equipment from falling from height, Westminster Magistrates’ Court was told on Wednesday.

    Roofer put staff at risk

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigated and prosecuted Singh for disregarding the safety of himself and others after receiving the photographic evidence.

    Singh was carrying out the work through his firm V S Multani Roofing Contractor, a business that had earlier received enforcement action for breaches of safety law covering work at height.

    The photos showed that Singh had disregarded legal requirements, despite HSE’s safety warnings, as no measures were in position to stop or mitigate a fall.

    Singh, 35, also paid £688 in costs after pleading guilty to two separate breaches of the Work at Height Regulations 2005.

    Company bosses can find working at height guidance on the HSE website.
