An inspector from WorkSafeNB saw workers not using fall arrest equipment, such as safety lines, guard rails, ropes and harnesses, while working on an eight-storey building. As a result, a worker was fined $500 and the company was fined $3,000 for fall protection violations [G. B. Roofing and Guy Boudreau, June 22, 2015].
