Car sales director prosecuted by Health and Safety Executive

HSE found Shaun Cosgrove and three others working on the flat roof of his company’s premises at Computatune Car Sales Ltd in Colne, without a safe system of work in place.

There was no edge protection, no means of preventing objects falling from the roof and no segregation from members of the public who could have been hit by falling materials.

HSE served a Prohibition Notice requiring him to stop work immediately and put in place proper precautions.

He was fined £1,500 and ordered to pay costs of £3,500

There is always a tendency to cut corners but ignorance is no defence.

Lawgistics recommendation is, if enforcement bodies get involved, listen to them carefully. If you have doubts then give us a call.
