A London based construction company has been fined over £250,000 after poor Health & Safety management on-site. 
 
In October 2017, the company received multiple prohibition notices after serious breaches of legislation. The company was found in violation of Work at Height Regulations 2005 and The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015. 
Follow-up inspections in November 2017 found further working at height breaches. An additional prohibition notice was served. Final follow up inspections where carried out in January 2018 which found further work at height regulation breaches. 
 
An investigation by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) found the company had not taken sufficient steps to comply with the original prohibition notice 
 
The company was found guilty of breaching Regulation 15.2 of The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015 and 33.1.G of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974. The company was fined £250,000 and ordered to pay costs of £4,790.40 in court fees. 
 
HSE inspector commented: “Companies should be aware that HSE will not hesitate to take appropriate enforcement action against those that fall below the required standards, and especially when enforcement notices are breached.”
