Lancashire builder risked lives on scaffolding

HSEA Lancashire builder has appeared in court after he ignored a formal warning to stop working at the top of a dangerous scaffolding tower.

The HSE Inspector could see there were no handrails or toe boards around the platform at the top of the tower to protect the workers from falling some seven metres to the ground. He immediately issued a Prohibition Notice ordering the men to come down from the unsafe scaffolding.
