Company fined $70k for skylight fall injury

A roofing company has been fined $70,000 after a labourer was seriously injured when he fell five metres through a skylight in Bicton.

Round Table Roofing was doing refurbishment work for Deslin, trading as Roofing 2000, at a building in Bicton in September 2015 when a labourer standing on a loose insulation roll next to a skylight fell through to the concrete floor, suffering multiple fractures.

Round Table Roofing pleaded guilty in Fremantle Magistrates Court to failing to provide and maintain a safe work environment and, by that failure, causing serious harm to a person.
