A Yorkshire roofing company and its director have been handed harsh sentences after failing to prevent the death of a worker who fell twelve metres through a storm-damaged skylight.
The incident occurred in December 2016. At that time, 39-year-old Jonathan May was working as a subcontractor for Davis Industrial Roofing Limited, who are based in Wakefield.
May and two others were working on the roof of a warehouse, replacing some skylights that had been damaged during a recent hailstorm. May fell through one of these skylights and dropped 12 metres (approx. 39 feet) to his death.
If you are in possession of (or are planning on purchasing) any battery powered material handling equipment such as a forklift or an electric pallet truck, it’s important that you know how to maintain your equipment properly. Proper battery maintenance is the best way to ensure that your equipment runs smoothly and has a long life.
The importance of proper battery maintenance cannot be understated - failure to maintain your battery correctly can cause battery failure. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the battery is properly maintained and serviced, so it’s important you know how to do so correctly.

Storing your ratchet straps improperly can cause rapid wear and tear, so it's worth taking the time to care for them and make sure they're stored correctly.
If your strap sustains damage because it was kept in the wrong place, it could snap or fail during use, which may cause a potentially fatal accident.
