A GROUP of workers from Barminco and Hahn Electrical Contracting were fired for their involvement in a re-enactment of the viral dance craze, the Harlem Shake.

The West Australian reports that one of the sacked miners claims no safety regulations were breached, and a second says no-one was endangered in the stunt at Agnew gold mine.

The Barminco staff have not only been fired, but banned for life, according to a letter of dismissal.

The workers believe their only breach of rules was removing their long-sleeve shirts as apparently all those involved had helmets, lamps, glasses and oxygen on hand.
