    Information
    Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is warning shopfitters to have correctly assembled mobile tower scaffolds after a worker fell three metres from unprotected scaffolding at a new shopping centre, in Enfield, on 15 September 2006, and suffered serious head injuries. *** Joinery, based in Hailsham, East Sussex, pleaded guilty, to three breaches of the Work at Height Regulations 2005. The company was fined 20,000 and was also instructed to pay costs of 11,895. The HSE inspection showed that while the injured person was not working directly for *** Joinery, they were in control of the work and for planning and supervising it. It also showed that the tower scaffold did not have the correct edge protection on it, and it was also not inspected before use. Both of these measures would have helped prevent the injured person from falling.
