    • date comes from the coronoer's inquest report on co-worker's death, which reads: "he died from multiple injuries received when he accidentally fell through the roof of a Star Bin to the floor below. That at such time he was in the course of his employment in the construction of a top to the Star Bin - that his fall was caused by the collapse pf the formwork of such top. From the evidence adduced I am unable to say whether or not any default in compliance with scaffolding Regulations or departure from standards of safety contributed to the fatality"
