The anonymous 57-year-old professional sustained fractures to both wrists and eye sockets, as well as swelling to his brain, when he fell through a skylight while working for Southampton-based firm Focus in April 2011.
At the time of the accident, the employee was operating as foreman among a group of colleagues on a task to remove an asbestos cement roof at the Kiln Acre Industrial Park in Fareham.
An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that while a proper risk assessment had been carried out prior to the work, the site still did not have sufficient protection in place to prevent such an incident from occurring.
Nina Judkins of the HSE said: "Focus failed to recognise that the project could not be completed from below the roof."
