Roofer Died When He Fell from Scaffolding

A 16-year-old roofer died when he fell 6 metres from unguarded scaffolding.

The death at work claim happened when he was completing work at a local business and he was asked to throw rubbish bags, which weighed twice the weight of him, into a skip on the ground.

The deceased did this, without being provided with a harness or any safety equipment when he sadly lost balance and fell over 6 metres to the concrete ground below him.

It is believed he was transported to hospital where he was being treated for serious head injuries when he sadly died one day post-accident.

The company which the apprentice was working for has been fined over £180,000 due to serious breach of health and safety regulations.
