Dust observed near potential ignition sources in multiple locations
West Fraser Mills has been fined $150,984 by WorkSafeBC.
WorkSafeBC inspected a debarker building and a plywood plant at this firm's manufacturing facility in Quesnel, B.C.
Accumulations of combustible dust were observed in multiple locations, including near potential ignition sources such as lighting, electrical motors and rotating machinery parts.
The firm failed to remove hazardous accumulations of combustible dust, a high-risk violation.
