A government inspector, from the "Office of Occupational Health & Safety" made a visit to the Wayside Tavern.
He was there to inspect an area in the back of house that had "been reported" as having an "unsafe" method of climbing into a loft.
The inspector assessed the ladder used to get to the loft and as it was simply a common step-ladder, declared it "unsafe".
The inspector issued a requisition that a new ladder be installed, this one to have "bannister rails" (would you believe?), and that the employer was to write up a formal "ladder climbing procedure" (to be signed by any/all staff before they climed this ladder).
Included in the procedure was to be the requirement that any person climbing this ladder must at all times maintain 4 (four) points of contact with the ladder.
.... Anyone wondering why the new state government is going to fire 20,000 public servants, will have part of the answer by reading the above.
