Subject: Two brothers injures in fall through roof at work
The owner of a solar panel business has been fined for safety failings after two brothers fell 15ft through a fragile roof that had not been identified as a risk.
The work accident happened when they were installing solar panels on a building at a farm. There was no equipment or measures in place, such as nets or scaffold edge protection, to prevent a fall.
One brother, 37, suffered a compression fracture of his back. The other sustained a broken ankle.
