Christopher Carson suffered multiple fractures in his back and left shoulder as well as a puncture wound when he fell a distance of 6.5 metres while working as an electrician's labourer for Robert AS Crockett and Partners in Dundee in October 2008.
Mr Carson's employer had been contracted by Electroguard Safety Systems - which was founded in 1979 - to install a new lighting system at Dundee Cold Stores and the man was hurt when he fell at the premises.
The worker - who was 23 at the time - fell through a roof light and subsequently required surgery and physiotherapy but still suffers chronic pain in both his back and shoulder.
Harry Bottesch of the Health and Safety Executive said there was no safe system in place to enable people to work from height safely, which resulted in Mr Carson sustaining "significant and lasting injuries".
