A construction worker suffered broken bones in a work accident that was not this fault.
Karl Kraus suffered a smashed heel when he fell from a height of around seven metres from a balcony as he worked on a large residential property in Saundersfoot.
At the time of the accident the 31-year-old construction worker was removing a concrete block that had been placed across a doorway in the house. He slipped and fell backwards falling to the ground below.
He then had to spend six days in hospital and his foot was in plaster for ten months due to the severity of his work injuries.
During an investigation conducted by the Health and Safety Executive, it was found that Mr Kraus's employer had failed to install any sort of fall accident prevention barrier at the property.
This comes after an unnamed employee sustained a damaged foot and broken elbow when he fell four metres while working for Neales Waste Management.
