What the hell is wrong with this world. Are Health and Safety a joke. Clearly they are to some people. Honest workers losing their lives for the sake of negligent bosses. Where are the days when an inspector,without their hands out for a kickback, did what they were paid to do, health and safety inspections. Life clearly carries no value anymore.
