 - A Merseyside builder has been fined £1,500 and ordered to pay costs
of £1000 after he and another man were spotted working on a pub roof in St Helens
without safety equipment.

HSE prosecuted Charles Molloy from Molloy Building Contractors after an inspector
spotted the men on the roof of the Black Horse Hotel on Park Road on 18 June 2009.

St Helens Magistrates' Court heard that Mr Molloy, 64, had been hired to replace the
ridge tiles on the top of the pub roof. But neither he nor the worker he employed
wore harnesses, put up scaffolding or took any other safety precautions.

Mr Molloy also ignored advice he was given about the way he was working by an
Environmental Health Officer from St Helens Council, a few days before HSE's visit.
Fragile roofs – safe working practices   The leaflet is for building owners and occupiers, construction businesses and workers in the construction refurbishment and building maintenance sectors – in short, anyone working on fragile roofs or having work done.   It explains which surfaces present a particular risk, and what you should do as a building owner or occupier. It also explains what a safe system of work is, and gives some examples.   Read some recent and past enforcement notices and see the real consequences of not planning and implementing a safe system of work on fragile surfaces.
