The NSW Safety regulator, SafeWork NSW recently issued a safety alert reminding people about the risks linked to work on roofs with skylights or plastic roof sheeting.

Last month one worker was killed and 2 others suffered serious injuries after falling through a skylight or plastic roof sheeting.
