'Everyone can play a role in health and safety in the workplace'
Saskatchewan company Shawcor Ltd. was fined $130,000 along with a $52,000 surcharge after one of its workers was injured after contact with machinery.
The incident took place on Dec.17, 2018, when a worker became entrapped in machinery in the Regina workplace.
The company pleaded guilty in Regina Provincial Court to contravening clause 137(1)(a) of The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996, or failing to provide an effective safeguard where a worker may contact a dangerous moving part of a machine, resulting in a serious injury to a worker.
“Everyone can play a role in health and safety in the workplace and help ensure that all workers go home safe at the end of the day,” said the Saskatchewan government.
