Teesside magistrates were told the potentially life-threatening incident was a result of inadequate risk assessments and unsafe scaffolding at the premises of Silk Road Foods Ltd in Middlesbrough, where the man worked.

He had been carrying out repairs to a roller shutter door using a tower scaffold when he fell onto a concrete floor below.

The man was taken to The James Cook University Hospital where he remained for eight days. He has since been unable to return to work.

Environmental Health Officers from Middlesbrough Council, who investigated the incident, found that the scaffolding was unsafe and that any workers using it would be exposed to significant risk of injury from a fall.

The company, based at Derwent Street in Middlesbrough, admitted breaching health and safety laws and were fined more than £12,500 for failing to protect the safety of an employee and the safety of a person not employed by the company.
