  • Aberdeen firm fined for health and safety breach | The Aberdeen Reporter
    Valentin Taljanov 61 broke his right arm seven ribs and a vertebra punctured his lung and cut his head in the incident at disused buildings at Aberdeen Harbour on 16 July 2009 His employer Lawrie Demolition Limited was prosecuted after an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive HSE and the Crown Office Health and Safety Division Peterhead Sheriff Court heard that Mr Taljanov along with colleagues was working in the vicinity of a substantial piece of cast iron guttering that had been left unsupported for two days at roof height during the demolition of old offices and warehousing at the former Craig Group Buildings at the harbour Mr Taljanov was moving roofing materials from a platform onto the ground when the guttering gave way and struck him After the event one witness expressed surprise that the guttering had stayed up as long as it did The HSE investigation found that Lawrie Demolition Limited failed to put in place a suitable system to identify hazards that might arise as works progressed and failed to adequately plan and implement exclusion zones in areas where materials could fall Lawrie Demolition Limited of Rigifa Cove Aberdeen was fined 40 000 after pleading guilty to breaching Regulation 29 of The Construction Design and Management Regulations 2007 Following the case HSE Inspector Liz Hunter said This incident was wholly preventable by taking down the guttering in one go and it was probably only Mr Taljanov s hard hat that prevented him from being killed Lawrie Demolition Limited failed to review the constantly changing risks that are created during demolition work Exclusion zones were not enforced to keep staff out of areas where materials could fall despite there being two supervisors on site and regular site visits by management I want demolition firms to learn from
