    A Month In Jail -- And No One Even Died! - By Jordan Barab, Confined Space
    OK, this is interesting, even if it happened in another far off country, north of the border.
    A Ministry of Labour investigation found the worker was not wearing a fall harness when ascending the roof. However, as the worker lay injured in the bin, the defendant put a fall harness on the worker and told the worker to tell Ministry of Labour investigators the worker had been wearing it while on the roof. The worker did as instructed.

    Of course the punishment was not just the bruised shin; it was the lie and the fact that the man could have been killed, just like two workers fall to their death every day down here, south of the border, in the United States.
