On 5 November 1996 an inspector had attended a site in response to a complaint. After arriving the inspector was advised by a union official that there were two workers on a high domed roof section of the building and neither worker was wearing fall protection. The Inspector identified himself to the two persons and asked for their names. This request was made on several occasions without any names being offered.
Approximately 45 minutes after attending the site another Inspector arrived to assist with the investigation. This second Inspector identified himself and asked for the persons names to no avail.
After extensive enquiries the contractors name was identified as Robert Harper. The other worker was a casual worker and his address was not known (only his name) to the contractor. The contractor had no records on this person.
