WorkSafeBC conducted an inspection of this firm's worker transportation vehicle in Pitt Meadows, B.C. jointly with the provincial Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement (CVSE) branch.


The inspection identified several deficiencies, including loose and incorrectly bolted tie rod sleeves and a broken cross-member.


The firm failed to ensure vehicles used to transport workers were maintained safely, a repeated and high-risk violation.
