Kilmarnock Sheriff Court heard how three inspections by the HSE took place at the construction site at Eglington Park in Irvine between October and December 2016.
Multiple prohibition and improvement notices were served on Stable Homes Limited for health and safety failings including unsafe scaffolding, unsafe electrics, inadequate welfare, unsafe traffic management, site tidiness and lack of general fire precautions.
The HSE investigation found that as client and principal contractor, Stable Homes Limited had failed to put an adequate plan in place to manage and monitor the construction phase of the project and this had led to significant risks on site.
The firm also failed to take adequate action to rectify the failings and comply with the enforcement notices.
The investigation also found that director of the company, Ravinder Singh, was acting as site manager and directly involved in the failings of the company.
Stable Homes Limited of Irvine, pleaded guilty to seven charges under health and safety regulations and was fined a total of £35,332.
Singh pleaded guilty to six charges and was sentenced to a 166 hours community pay back order and was disqualified from holding a directorship for two years.
After the hearing HM inspector Helen Diamond said: “Companies should be aware that HSE will not hesitate to take appropriate enforcement action against those who fall below the standards required on construction sites. HSE will also take action against senior people in those companies for their role in the creation of unacceptable risks on sites.”
