Defendant:
Skill.Net Recruitment
PERNOD RICARD NEW ZEALAND LTD was fined $8750 under s18(1)(a) and ordered to pay $7500 in reparations after an on-hire worker fell 3.3m through a false ceiling while collecting rubbish from a mezzanine floor. The worker stepped off the edge of the wooden platform, onto the ceiling lining as he was gathering the rubbish, and fell onto the factory’s concrete floor, fracturing his heel. The lighting in the area was inadequate, there were no safety rails in place, and the worker had not been warned to stay on the platform. ( Auckland DC, June 18) 
The worker’s employer, SKILL.NET RECRUITMENT LTD, was fined $3500 under s6 and ordered to pay reparations of $2500 (Auckland DC, June 18).
