Nationwide construction firm fined for multiple health and safety failings

A Lancashire-based construction company has been fined for a series of safety breaches, including failing to fence off building sites from the public and failing to provide adequate welfare facilities for their workers.

The prosecution follows an unannounced visit by HSE to the site run by Paddle Ltd – often known as Paddle Homes and which has building sites across the UK – at Cedar Road and Sycamore Avenue, Eglwys Brewis, St. Athan, Vale of Glamorgan in December 2008.
