A scaffolding accident that caused two workers to injure themselves has lead to a former director of the company to be fined.
The accident involved two workers who wish to be remain anonymous that were dismantling some scaffolding, when it fell, leading to one worker falling and fracturing his ankle and heel and the other suffered minor injuries.
The Health and Safety Executive investigated the accident and concluded the scaffolding had not been erected to industry standards which Robert Leslie Butler, formerly of RB & Son Scaffolding pleaded guilty to.
Mr Butler was fined £3,000 and ordered to pay £2,000 in costs for the breach of Work at Height Regulations.
