It is reported by Devon & Cornwall Police in a website article published 14 October 2016, that the owner of a UK gutter cleaning company has been found guilty of manslaughter
following an incident in December 2014 where a 17-year-old worker died as a result of falling from a ladder. The owner of the business was jailed to a total of five years.
Good work practices and practical training for workers are essential. Safe ladder use forms just a part of the MSS 'Work Safely At Height' course (RIIWHS204D). For more information, click here
