A safety alert has been issued by SafeWork NSW following a workplace incident last month that resulted in the death of one worker.

The worker was killed and two other suffered serious injuries after falling through a skylight recently prompting the safety alert from SafeWork.

The regulator said these incidents are proof that it’s not  just exposed edges that create the risk of a fall when working on roofs.  SafeWork reminded all workers that not every area of a roof is safe to walk on or step or fall onto.

Sometimes plastic sheeting can become brittle and is reliant on correct installation for its effectiveness.
