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. 
A company was sentenced today after a worker fell from a ladder sustaining a fracture to his lower leg. 
The operative was attempting to install a first-floor rear bedroom window at a property, when the ladder he was climbing slipped on the surface. The ladder was not footed or tied, and the operative fell from a height of over three metres, sustaining a broken knee cap which required surgery.
