I don't see it happening. Too many residential builder pad campaign coffers. Once they start squealin', the brakes will be put on the residential inspections.

IF they were to ever start doing regular inspections on residential jobs, they'd make a killin'!

Yes they would. It would be like giving away parking tickets in the city. Infractions everywhere.

I was eating some cereal when I read this and almost choked. My G/F would tell me to work with what I've got.

Hi we have department of labour going around here in Nova Scotia, they handed out fines the other week to all the employees on a site because there was no MSDS sheet available for 2 boxes of unopened Mud used by the drywallers.

20K? Must not be his first offense. The fines start low but they get pretty serious after a couple. 20K does seem a little rediculous though.
