Roofing firm caught on camera risking lives

A West London roofing company and its director have been prosecuted after workers were photographed on a house roof without any safety measures to stop them falling to the ground below.

The offences came to light when a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspector witnessed the potential dangers to workers on the roof of a property in Kingsbury, Brent, after receiving a complaint.

Westminster Magistrates heard yesterday (26 March) that the work was being carried out by Ranjit Roofing Company Ltd, of Ealing, under the control of director Ranjit Singh, from Hounslow.

HSE said the inspector had seen three workers on the roof of the property, on 10 July 2012, but without adequate measures, such as scaffolding or harnesses, to safeguard them from falls. There was also nothing to prevent other building materials or objects from falling, also exposing any workers on the ground to a serious risk of injury.
