Top Spot of the Week: Ontario's Workplace Safety & Insurance Board's "Shopgirl"
A young woman employee of a hip clothing store falls off a ladder while trying to hang a banner, crashing through a glass display case below. As a fellow worker calls for help, the bloody victim stands up and declares, "This is no accident!" She contends the company should have replaced the ladder years ago, and neglected to institute a proper safety policy. Viewers are directed to Prevent-it.ca. for more info.
