I THINK it’s good the owner of the Bulphan firm was fined following the fall of his worker.

I can’t image what the employee went through or suffered with the fall.

I wish them a very speedy recovery. I strongly believe that it’s about time that we had better health and safety checks within out companies in our communities.

It is sad that this person has fallen victim to lower standards of safety when it could have been prevented, as stated by health and safety officers.

We must be and feel safe at our places of work and if we do not then something needs to be looked into and sorted as soon as possible.

I think we could do with more checks on businesses, to help prevent more incidents and serious injuries like what has happened to this man.
