    $20,000 fine for employee's fall - The Hobart Mercury, Australia
    The worker had been using a chainsaw to demolish the walkway he was standing on when it collapsed.

    The company did not undertake a risk assessment, no scaffold was used -- although one was supposed to have been used -- and the company failed to ensure the worker was wearing a safety harness.

    Scaffolder wins £3.7 million pay-out - By MARK NICHOLLS, Norfolk Eastern Daily Press, UK
    The tragedy happened when he passed scaffolding material to a colleague working on the next level.

    But a scaffolding rail in front of him came loose from its socket and with nothing else to prevent him falling, he fell to the ground.

    Mr Moore, who was 33 at the time, suffered life-threatening injuries including multiple fractures, damaged eyesight and a severe brain injury that required emergency surgery in Holland to save his life.
