Prosecution after five roofers injured in steel collapse at school

A Worcestershire construction company has been ordered to pay fines and costs of more than £200,000 after five roofing contractors were seriously injured when a heavy steel canopy for a new secondary school collapsed.
 
The workers sustained injuries ranging from fractures and broken bones to cuts and bruising following a 13-metre plunge at the Abraham Darby Academy in Madeley, Telford, on 25 August 2011.
 
Droitwich-based company was prosecuted last Friday (13 December) by the HSE after an investigation identified failings with the steelwork that gave way.
Shrewsbury Crown Court heard that key pieces of the canopy truss steelwork were insufficiently welded together. As a result when the roofing contractors added further materials to the roof, key welds failed and the structure collapsed – taking the roofers with it and causing enormous damage to the front of the new school.
 
The collapsed canopy was 57 metres long and weighed in at over 40 tonnes. A large vertical steel support column for the canopy, called the ‘skylon’ also collapsed as a direct result of the canopy failure.
 
HSE found Adstone Construction Ltd, which was responsible for the structure, had failed to provide adequate instructions to those responsible for the fabrication and welding of the canopy truss, and failed to adequately inspect the completed work.
