Dryliner falls through plaster board access hole
We were sorry to hear that a Dryliner has recently sustained serious injuries after falling through a plaster board access hole.
The Dryliner was on the job as a subcontractor. He fell three metres through a hole cut into a floor during the refurbishment of a property. Subsequently, two contractors have been fined.
Following a Health & Safety Executive (HSE) investigation, they found that the hole was not adequately protected via covering or access. Read the full Construction Enquirer article here.
