A report by WorkSafeBC says former B.C. premier Gordon Campbell did not properly oversee safety measures at his summer home where a roofer fell to his death last year.
Dave Lesko, 40, died July 4, 2011, after falling through a skylight opening at the home in Halfmoon Bay on the Sunshine Coast, west of Vancouver.
WorkSafe says Campbell was considered the "Prime Contractor" on the job site, but didn't meet the responsibilities for co-ordinating health and safety activities, although it also says Campbell wasn't aware he was considered the prime contractor or the responsibilities that carried, said a report from CKAY radio on the Sunshine Coast.
WorkSafe also says the roofing contractor — Weather Tight Supplies — failed to establish safe work procedures for roof openings, and did not provide adequate supervision and enforcement.
So far, WorkSafe has not assessed any penalties in the case.
Campbell, who's now Canada's High Commissioner to Great Britain, did not respond to a request for comment.
