HSE warns of robust action after prosecution of Everest Ltd

HSE warns of robust action after prosecution of Everest Ltd:

"The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued a stark warning that companies face robust enforcement action following its prosecution of Everest Ltd, after workers were found to be repeatedly exposed to the risk of falling from height.

Everest Ltd, of Sopers Road, Cuffley, Potters Bar, was fined £6,000 with £15,963.25 costs, at Luton Magistrates’ Court today (April 30), after pleading guilty to breaching health and safety law including Work At Height Regulations 2005"


Everest Ltd was also recently fined £4,000 in another case taken by HSE, when a Roofline Installer fell from the platform on which he was working.
